Basically, I don't know of any instance where this should be autoinstalled. If you know of something please let me know. With these patches applied, the Xorg modesetting driver will be used instead of vesa on systems without a GPU covered by existing MHWD configs, which provides a way better out-of-the-box experience. Users can still choose to manually install video-vesa to force Xorg to use vesa, although its hidden from the GUI (see below). Xorg may still choose to use the vesa driver if it has no other choice.
The reason for this is that Manjaro no longer has to maintain a list of devices/vendors that should use the modesetting driver instead of the vesa driver.
also I may or may not have wrongly assumed video-vesa never gets autoinstalled and therefore deleted said list sorry @philm, but yea this fixes it
Additionally, I stopped mhwd from ever automatically installing configs with a priority of 0 (this isn't technically needed, but still nice to have). In MSM, I hid the video-vesa config under a new checkbox "Show dangerous configs" as requested in this post.
Let me know what you think, is this a good idea?
