Someone would have to take a look into what SL is testing to decide that
the hardware can't do what it wants.  MESA_GLSL=dump can sometimes get
you information about shaders they tried to compile that failed for some
reason (often due to shaders being invalid even though some other driver
passed them through).  Or it may be that they just want a higher version
of GL -- Mesa 8.0, with float textures enabled, exposes 3.0 on gen6.
