David Airlie today landed support for the ARB_gpu_shader_fp64 and ARB_vertex_attrib_64bit OpenGL extensions within Mesa Git master.

The Red Hat developer finished up the ARB_gpu_shader_fp64 as needed for OpenGL 4.0 and ARB_vertex_attrib_64bit as needed for OpenGL 4.1. Previously only the Nouveau NVC0, LLVMpipe, and Softpipe drivers supported these two 64-bit floating point related extensions, but now RadeonSI is the first open-source AMD driver to do so.
