Channel topic sounds like a great plan.

Our plan is to use NIR by default wherever possible in 10.6, but have
the INTEL_USE_NIR=0 flag for people to try if they encounter problems.
Then, after the branch point (or release?) delete the old code.  But
we can't do that unless we actually ship it by default :)

As I understand it, Matt's patches make the GLSL IR -> NIR switch for VS
a lot more positive of a switch - plus they should be an improvement for
Gen7+ in general - so I'd definitely like to see them make it.

I think they're all reviewed at this point, so we probably just need to
push them.

Thanks, Emil!
