Disclaimer: I'm just a list reader.

I've been wondering about this for a while: is there a structure in
which information is stored that is tied to the card with which the code
is dealing, and if not, isn't it a good idea to introduce one?

This patch triggered this again for me because it seems that such a
structure would be benefical both for performance and for code readability.

The structure would get filled with information only once: when the card
is detected.

For the case of the patch this would mean that the function
'r600_bc_num_tex_and_vtx_clauses' would get replaced by retrieving a
field from the structure, since the function only returns a constant
(dependent on the type of the card).
