Hi Brian,
I suspect you did not have the time to test the series, have you ? As
we've got some patches that conflict with this, I'm wondering if I
should respin things (+ drop the sw_winsys rework as mentioned) or if
I should chill for another week or so.

Considering how unhappy you were with the with the current state of
things (bth neither was I, but you can see why I haven't bothered
earlier), can you please take a look and/or test. You will still need
the "WIP: gallium: introduce load_pipe_screen()" on top, for Android.

The lot can be found in branch pipe-loader-redux at
