There's a ton of changes in swrast since 7.11, unfortunately.

Let's first find out why the 'fallback' variable in _mesa_meta_DrawPixels() is
getting set.  Basically, use gdb to set a breakpoint in _mesa_meta_DrawPixels()
then go step by step to see where 'fallback = GL_TRUE' is getting hit.

To set a breakpoint: "break _mesa_meta_DrawPixels()"
To step one instruction: "s" or "step"

When you find the point where fallback = GL_TRUE is set, note the current line
and try to print some of the variables in the conditionals.
