Hey Phi,

I can confirm this extension isn't implemented in Mesa.
I don't why it wasn't.

Talking briefly with Jason, it seems that mapping texture makes less 
sense on Skylake and above generations.
There we maintain compressed version of the textures in memory to 
further reduce memory bandwidth.
This would make the memory mapped mechanism more costly because we would 
need to decompress the texture when you want to access it (probably 
close to a ReadPixels in terms of performance).
