This is a typical scenario with arm platforms, with meson if DRIDRIVERS
is empty then dri is disabled automatically, but gbm needs dri2 enabled
for it to have proper backend, in autotools we could use --enable-gbm
--enable-dri and get correct behaviour but with meson enabling dri2 only
works if DRIDRIVERS is not empty

This fixes mesa-gl build for rpi machines when using userland graphics

+Fix meson regression for --enable-dri --enable-gbm combo equivalent
+For arm if DRIDRIVERS is set to 'auto' then respect that
+to enable dri support, this is required for devices where
+we use mesa to provide gl/libgbm implementation and rest
+comes from some proprietary driver, typical case is userland
+graphics driver for raspberrypi devices.
+This would mean that when we set 
+DRIDRIVERS_rpi = ",auto"
+Then the meson system will build the dri with gbm backend
+as was the case with autotools where --enable-dri did the
+same thing
