I don't think you can in the current setup. You'd pretty much have to
do something along the lines of r600_spi_update() or

I guess my point was mostly that there's not much of a point in doing
the clamping both through BLEND_CLAMP and the fragment shader. Also, I
guess we need this for EG+ as well.

Thanks for clearing this up.
