a4xx in the holiday spirit

Just in time for the upcoming break, we have figured out how to do alpha-test, and now supertuxkart is rendering properly:

If you are wondering about the new stk beta, I have a build from a few weeks back which seems to render properly as well.. few rough edges but I think that is just from using random git commit-id for stk.  But we don't have enough gl3 features yet (on a3xx or a4xx) to be using the new rendering paths.

And gnome-shell works nicely too.  Still some rendering issues with xonotic.  And a little ways behind a3xx in piglit results, but not quite as much as I would have expected at this early stage.

Still missing are some optimizations that are important for certain use-cases (hw-binning support for games, GMEM bypass for UI/mipmap-generation/etc).  But the a420 in apq8084 (ifc6540 board) is surprisingly fast all the same.
