I don't understand the exact question you're asking me.

Regardless you crossport this particular patch or not, you will get an
entirely untested tree, and I can't advise you myself without spending
considerable time looking into the code myself -- time which I really
don't have. So I'm afraid you'll need to use your best judgment, and
maybe do some piglit runs with llvmpipe if you want to be safer than
