Well, a lot of fixes got in these past two days thanks to some awesome fellow that offered pull requests!
That might explain why the intel driver is more accurate now, tomtomme
For the extension implementation, AFAIK the extension must be first implemented in mesa, then (if necessary, which is in most cases) it has to be implemented for all the drivers.
For instance, the swrast driver is a software driver, no GPU acceleration here. So, for this driver, all the code has to be written entirely for each extension.
For the other drivers like i965, nvc0 or r600, the idea is to plug the mesa extension into the right function in the GPU's API (that's why it was a releaf when ATI opened up their specs).
That's what I understand of all this. It makes sense to me, but I might be wrong
Oh and don't worry, my host won't get down any time soon. I have it for more than 10 years now, and I don't plan to get it down!
Anyway, the code is open source, so anyone can execute the script anywhere

Why is there a difference between HD 7850 and R9 270X?
The HD 7850 often benefit from the new kernel, the R9 270X does not.
It is the same chip (Pitcairn/Curaçao), only different number of shaders and different clock speeds.
P.S.: Why does this forum software change the header (uppercase to lowercase)?
