No I think it's a bug in that I may have convinced myself the constant
buffer we give to drivers is per context, when it really isn't.

The question is whether this is some feature anyone is ever going to
care about at this point, I'd still like to land this, and I try and
go write a piglit test that isn't crap to test for that case.
