Yea, this is something we need to fix in mesa.  The problem is that
the EGL loader prefers gallium drivers, even to the point where it
will load the gallim swrast over the intel DRI driver.  A better work
around may be to not compile the gallium swrast driver, but eventually
we need to make upstream mesa just get the load order right.

Also, not API or ABI stable at this point.  I hope we can get it there
for xserver 1.10.
