My only objection is over adding a driver that is explicitly a toy,
the confusion it will cause users, and the developer time it will
waste. It wasn't uncommon for a user to waste a nontrivial amount of
someone's time in #intel-gfx only to discover that they were trying to
use the (old) i965g driver that no one maintained.

I think everything Marek said was correct. If you could extend Gallium
to consume GLSL IR it might actually be an interesting project.
