[Mesa-dev] [PATCH 0/8] Render node only opencl and pipe-loader cleanups

Hello all,

As mentioned over IRC a few weeks back, here is a series that removes 
support for non-render node devices.

The two main motivations being:
 - Currently we force X/xcb onto everyone that wants to use OpenCL
(headless OpenCL systems/farms anyone ?)
 - Nice overall cleanup - 43 insertions(+), 279 deletions(-)

Note that the final patches touch related code - from removing a unused 
function (pipe_loader_sw_probe_xlib) to using loader_open_device() over 
open(), with the former caring about CLOEXEC.
