There also seemed to be rough consensus on this on #dri-devel, and
we're getting more and more bugzilla spam, so I've closed the piglit
product in bugzilla for new bug entry and enabled gitlab issues for
mesa/piglit. There's only 27 open bugs left in bz; I'll take a pass
through them to close out anything obviously fixed or no longer
relevant, and migrate the rest.
