I gave this a try over the weekend.

Our app both links in Mesa (through VTK) and runtime-loads it via
dlopen.  For a long while, we were able to link in one Mesa to VTK, and
then load a newer one, which was pretty useful for testing.

This is broken with the current 7.8 branch.  I haven't yet tried a
bisect to figure out when it started happening.. it's hard w/ two
Mesa's involved, makes the search space much larger.

When I link + load the same lib, though, everything works well, and the
bugs we've been hitting are fixed too ;) I would say what we've been
doing in terms of two different libs is sketch anyway.

So, long story short: current 7.8 is tested to be good for our case.
