I'm a bit fresh in the area, but where do we check that the OpenGL
version supported is 3.0 or greater ? Is there an assumption that all
dri2/3 modules support it ?

A similar commit has landed for dri2 in mesa 10.2 f658150639c(glx:
Pass NULL DRI drawables into the DRI driver for None GLX drawables).
Shouldn't a similar one be due for dri(1), drisw etc ? Not suggesting
that you should prep one, just asking.

patch 2/3) changes could be pushed one level up to
glxcurrent.c:MakeContextCurrent. Bit unfortunate about the duplication
but that's another story.
