On second thought, it might still make sense to be able to set different
settings for different Gallium drivers in one drirc file. However, I
wonder if it wouldn't be better to use the DRI driver name (the output
of xdriinfo driver <screen>), i.e. e.g. 'r600' instead of 'r600g'. Isn't
there a discrepancy otherwise between the settings shown by the driconf
GUI and those actually taking effect?
