can it be the simplest (even if temporary and hackish) solution to 
prepare a patch outside OpenIndiana and just apply it in our build system?

I removed 'osd' style from glade and regenerated 
lightdm-gtk-greeter-ui.h like this (as seen in Makefile.am) on Linux:

exo-csource --static --strip-comments --strip-content 
--name=lightdm_gtk_greeter_ui lightdm-gtk-greeter.glade > 

I applied the patch and published to my userland repo, installed to GZ 
and the only difference I see is that the top panel is now back to the 
old whitish color from transparent dark blue. But I use GTK 3.22.30, 
your mileage may vary.

See the patch attached. I am happy to prepare PR based on this, if we 
find this path viable.

lightdm-gtk-greeter-css-fallback.h and 
lightdm-gtk-greeter-css-application.h did not change during a similar
