At long last, Virgil 3D can be realized on Windows 10 Host for Linux VM
with host OpenGL acceleration. This is based on initial work by akihikodaki
"Virgil 3D renderer on macOS" at
https://mail.gnu.org/archive/html/qemu-devel/2021-02/msg04235.html with

- Remove ANGLE EGL dependency and reuse existing OpenGL Core support
  from SDL2 used by Linux.
- Fix known issues with OpenGL Core and provide MINGW-packages for virglrenderer
- 2 simple, non-invasive QEMU patches, supporting both Windows 10 and
- Performance comparable to ANGLE OpenGL ES backend.

Addtional SDL2 fix required to workaround Apple OpenGL FBO quirk.
