Personally I don't think it's worth accepting bugs for 3D for any
driver until it passes all of the Mesa and piglit tests (or at least
the ones that excercise the most common functions). In the current
state I imagine we would get something like 500 bugs for what amounts
to 50 actual problems that the Mesa or piglit could just as easily
tell us about. Not sure about nv50, but no one has seriously tackled
nv30 or nv40 in this area.

Thanks for the offer however.
