Apparently the GBM bypass logic was quite safe for a couple of years. The offending regression only happened fairly recently in:

oup interface. This allows platforms to designate which DisplayBuffers must be p
osted in a common function.

        untrusted 3rd parties.
      . More refactorings to support renderers other than GL.
      . Add MirBlob to the client API - a tool for serializing and
        deserializing data.
      . Introduce a libinput based input platform, not yet used by default.
      . Provide a mechanism for the shell to send events on surface
      . Provide mir::shell::DisplayConfigurationController allowing shells

      . Send events pertaining to the output a surface is currently on (dpi,
        form factor, scale) to clients.

        client (LP: #1496849)
