This "patch" is not an actual solution, just a workaround so no other
packages get broken by utah-glx. The problem is not that utah-glx is
*not* a MESA implementation but rather that it is incomplete.

That's fine, since it's what is required to keep the package in
unstable, but please don't close the bugs that refer to API errors but
set them to normal severity instead (these are still bugs, but since
they only break packages that specifically request being built against
utah-glx, they are no longer release-critical). The other, trivial ones
(like the config.sub stuff) should be closed in the changelog so they
are properly marked as fixed. If you have fun, you can also merge the
reports that are the same and/or give them better titles.
