No idea what the official stance regarding Vulkan is, but to ensure 
patches aren't "lost" it's a good idea to create an issue at 
https://bugzilla.libsdl.org/ and attach the patch there.

I don't know why you didn't get feedback, but probably the relevant 
people (Sam and Ryan mostly?) are just busy - and this mailing list 
hasn't been very active in the last weeks, so don't worry, it's not 
specific to your patch :)

Anyway, I don't know much about Vulkan so I can't judge your code, but I 
think SDL should support it, as it seems to gain traction, especially on
