Let's start with the not-so obvious question:
Why does one open the imx as render node?

Of the top of my head:
There is nothing in egl/android that should require an authenticated device.
Hence, using a card node should be fine - the etnaviv code opens the
render node it needs.

It's been a while since I looked at the imx/etna code, so I may be
missing something.
