It's the other way around (which I can make more clear in the commit
message).  Mesa still exports the "x" functions, but Catalyst does not.
 Due to limitations in our infrastructure, if I disable those functions
in libGL they also disappear from libGLESv1_CM.  The Khronos GLES1
conformance tests expect libGLESv1_CM to export the "x" functions, so we
can't remove them... from either library.
