I have that in my plans, but it is not there yet. I'm updating to
master at least weekly and fixing things, but new breakage seems to
happen faster than getting fixes committed. I'm usually the one fixing
the breakage. Given most people don't have an Android tree, having
them fix build problems is not all that realistic. I'll happily test
the fixes though.

BTW, the latest break is from "i965/fs_surface_builder: Add a helper
for converting GL to ISL formats."
