I don't think merging the glsl-to-tgsi branch would make it much more
difficult to cherry pick fixes to 7.11.  The main change in the branch is
the addition of a new file to st/mesa (st_glsl_to_tgsi.cpp) containing the
GLSL->TGSI translator.  That in and of itself doesn't make it any harder.

The only existing files with non-trivial changes that might affect
cherry-picking are uniforms.c and prog_parameter.c in core Mesa.  Several
other files in st/mesa and core Mesa have minor changes to make them work
with either the prog_parameter changes or to work without Mesa IR, but I
don't think those changes are enough to make cherry-picking difficult.
They're at least not worse than most changes in master in that regard.
