[Mesa-dev] Require micro-benchmarks for performance optimization oriented patches

I know that this might sound troublesome but since there is no 
benchmarks done by reviewers before pushing the performance optimization 
oriented patches into master branch, I think it's as important as piglit 
tests and necessary to ask the patch provider for simple OpenGL micro 
benchmarks triggering the optimized code path to see if there is any 
real benefits and make sure that it isn't degrading the performance.

Being more strict about pushing and quality assurance of these kind of 
patches will save hours of bisecting and hair-pulling to find the root 
cause of performance degrades.

Best regards,
