If there are known crashes, and no piglit statistics, how you can trust
that the games which the patch series seems to already help, actually do
work?  That they don't crash or deadlock at some point because of it?

I hate to repeat myself, but it was tested with quite a bunch of games. You
know, I actually made it work for Gallium including bug fixes in glthread
like bad locking and race conditions. I know Samuel Pitoiset also tested it
with good results. A bunch of people on IRC tested it too.

Concerning the glmark crash, I don't care. Get over it.
