Ack from me.

It would be an ack from, but...

If it were just linked lists, I'd say someone should write the
Coccinelle to transform the tree to use the one in util and call it a
day. It's a bit more complicated though, NIR depends on GLSL types.
Though that could probably continue to live in its current location even
if glsl moves? Might breed confusion.

If src/gallium/drivers/* is distributed to src/*/* this becomes a lot
less interesting I think?
