The GLSL/OpenGL 4.50 version is now exposed by the RadeonSI Gallium3D driver.

The GLSL version exposed is set to 450 rather than 430 with this commit pushed ahead today and with that paving the way for formal OpenGL 4.5 support.

This came after AMD's Nicolai Hähnle was landing more fixes as part of OpenGL 4.5 compliance work as set out by the Khronos conformance test suite.

Nicolai had landed more CTS fixes yesterday and not all of that work is set to be back-ported to Mesa 13.0.x series. Thus it won't be until the next stable Mesa release in 3~4 months time when this support will be out in an official version of Mesa.
