Paul reminded that thanks to the simd16 repdata clear, we're basically
never calling glsl clear on gen6+, and we only enable GS on gen7+.

As such, I'm not really concerned about the performance any more, and by
the time anyone else can care about it we should have ARB_sso, at which
point optionally slotting in a GS to do this work on a layered FB is
easy.  I think.
