I'm ever so slightly conserned that RTLD_NOLOAD is not part of the POSIX
standard, thus it's missing on some platforms (*BSD seems ok, while
Solaris, MacOS are not).

Then again this code is not build for them so we are safe. Plus it does
save nastry crashes :-) Feel free to add the Cc: mesa-stable tag.

Note(s) so self: 1) what was the main obstactle for dropping libudev and
sysfs 2) all that handling is completely broken in our configure.ac :-\
