So far no ddx driver rebuild seems required.

I'm running the new MESA on my Ati X200m(R300) notebook with the new
gallium driver. It renders well (was broken since KMS+classic mesa
useage) but very slowly. Maybe we can imrove this.

My desktop is running Nouveau and Supertuxkart is fast and really
usable now. A big step forward.

Please test the all driver. Usually even a minor libdrm bump breaks the
drivers. Give feedback.

I discoverd today that fusion-icon won't run with the new update,
because of the missing glxinfo. This program is now located under
"mesa-demos". fusion-icon complains about the missing glxinfo and won't
start, so install "mesa-demos" manually at the moment.

@fusion-icon maintainer:
Should be added as a depend to the package or at least a note should be
posted to that.

please file a bug report next time so it does not get lost.

On a related note, it can't be fixed before the python2 move as
otherwise this fix will move to community before mesa moves to extra
with the python2 move.

Honestly, can this decision to split the package be explained a bit
more? I feel like we've gone a little overboard on doing some of these
splits. Saving 405K from a package (installed, while only 80K on the
download!) seems silly for the number of "where did my glx* tools go"
and "I installed mesa but don't have glx*" questions that are going to
arise now, especially from long-time Arch users.
