As a followup, looks like libglvnd is optional for building mesa, and without 
that change I think it is just a drop in version bump. I'm not sure about 
dependents generally, but libepoxy and xorg-server needed no changes.

So, shall we reduce this patch to just a Mesa update, and then libglvnd as a 
separate issue? I think that one would require changing/adding inputs to all GL 
packages, as they should link to libglvnd rather than any vendor's GL directly, 
if I understand correctly.

With just a version change I think this should be easily merged, can anyone 
else weigh in on that?
