Ok, unification of the version string would actually cause a small
issue due to the fact that in OpenGL we use the spelling "Mesa",
whereas in clover for some reason we use "MESA". It should be
relatively safe to change the OpenCL spelling to match the OpenGL
spelling (I'm not aware of any software that explicitly does things
differently on detecting Clover checking for the version string) or
just keep it separate?

Second question: shall I squash the introduction of the SHA1 in Clover
with the introduction of the LLVM version everywhere, or should I keep
those as separate patches?
