I should have also said that this series requires my previous 2 GLX
fixes patches (posted yesterday). The whole thing is available at:
As soon as patches 05/20 and 15/20 reviewed and committed, I will send
the xserver patches out for review. These are the patches that add the
new entry-points in dri_interface.h for DRI2 and DRISW.
