ChromeOS disables it for reasons I'm currently not sure about:


And since the primary use case for vulkan at the moment seems to be
Android and I can conceive us not being able to use the cache there
for reasons, I'm not sure if disabling the cache is really that
unreasonable, though it is not ideal that they apparently override the
upstream configure.

Since most of that stuff seems to be driven by GL, this is pretty much
a "isolate radv from whatever people do on the GL side of things"
