  I did not check at the OpenCL implementation by mesa.
But, for the record, if mesa provides an OpenCL implementation,
it needs to do it by providing an ICD, and not the libOpenCL.so.1
  The libOpenCL.so.1 must be a ICD Loader in order to allow the
co-installation of several OpenCL implementations. There exists
several implementation for the ICD Loader. There even is
ocl-icd packaged in main that is a free implementation...
