Yes, nouveau needs to fall back calling dri2Invalidate in the
glViewport() hook like other DRI2 drivers. If the nouveau developers
don't want to do that (I think Francisco hinted that he didn't want to
imlpement the old hack), nouveau needs to fail to load when the
__DRI_USE_INVALIDATE extension is not present in the extension list
passed from the loader (effectively requiring master xorg and mesa).
