We could put this kind of modules in src/gallium/auxiliary/foo , but provide them as separate convenient libraries (i.e., libfoo.a, which are only built/linked as appropriate), as opposed to be bundled into libgallium.a (which should retain only cross-platform portable code).
I think it would still be less confusing than having auxiliary libraries that are not winsys in src/gallium/winsys .
