[Mesa-dev] Remove classic drivers or fork src/mesa for gallium?

Here are 2 proposals to simplify and better optimize the GL->Gallium

1) Move classic drivers to a fork of Mesa, and remove them from master.
Classic drivers won't share any code with master. glvnd will load them, but
glvnd is not ready for this yet.

2) Keep classic drivers. Fork src/mesa for Gallium. I think only mesa/main,
mesa/vbo, mesa/program, and drivers/dri/common need to be forked and
mesa/state_tracker moved. src/gallium/state-trackers/gl/ can be the target

Option 2 is more acceptable to people who want to keep classic drivers in
the tree and it can be done right now.
