I was wondering if we need to this far or could we just detect
BUFFER, ATOMIC decls
and convert those to atomic counters somehow?
The TGSI_FILE_HW_ATOMIC stuff is quite attunded to r600 hw atomics, and I'm
not sure how well it maps to virgl, like it all the tests tpass with
it, then maybe it
should be fine.
