That moved to MESA_META_TRANSFORM due to a review request. As I
understood the rationale, it's already connected to the gl_context::Transform
variable by the GL spec, so it belongs into transform also for meta operations.
Brian, or what was there an other reason for moving this to MESA_META_TRANSFORM?

Initially I had that saved if either MESA_META_VIEWPORT or
MESA_META_DEPTH_TEST is requested since the origin argument affects
the viewport transform and the depth mode affects the mapping of depth
values into the depth buffer.
I have at that time also thought about introducing a completely new
MESA_META_CLIP_CONTROL since clip control does not exactly fit anywhere.
Or as a third alternative split out a _mesa_clip_control_origin(origin)
and a _mesa_clip_control_mode(mode) from _mesa_ClipControl(mode, origin)
and use the mesa internal functions in meta.c to save if either
