You have the misfortune to be using a big-endian CPU, and that
corruption looks quite a lot like the vertex processing stage getting
channel order wrong. Since the internals of both TGSI and NIR ought to
be endian-indifferent, I suspect the error would be at point where you
acquire the vertex data from the app and need to do machine-specific
unpacking, but that's just a guess. Dumping the IR generated by each
should hopefully be instructive.

It might also be worth trying to build Mesa 20 against LLVM 6 to see if
that points to anything in LLVM, but that's probably a bit less likely.
