has what cards directly support double precision for r600/700/evergreen

The plan is to implement a soffloat library like the fglrx drivers do for the
GPUs that don't do doubles just to satisfy the GL4.0 requirement.

Whether we implement this in GLSL, NIR or in the backends is currently
an open question.

Not sure what the nvidia limitations are if any.
