> This series removes support for the the old NV_fragment_program extension.
> No hardware drivers implemented it (only swrast), we aren't aware of any
> applications that use it, and we already dropped NV_vertex_program.
> You can obtain it in the 'nukefp' branch of:

> (it applies on top of Eric's series to remove NV_vertex_program).
> This series does /not/ remove NV_fragment_program_option, which is layered
> on top of ARB_fragment_program (attempting to provide the same level of
> functionality as NV_fragment_program but in the standard syntax).  I left
> it because SPECviewperf11 apparently requires NV_fragment_program2, which
> requires NV_fragment_program_option.  swrast remains the only implementation
> of that extension.
> The later patches are just miscellaneous cleaning in the program code.
