It *should* be what's done in Mesa, but no, not currently at least.

I unfortunately haven't gotten around to adding TLS autodetection
support to Mesa, yet.  There was some concern about doing it there
before the X server does it, due to ABI issues.  So I'd like to /claim/
that I was waiting for an X release with this autodetection first, but
in reality it's just that I've been distracted :)

That said, now that I know about this issue, I'll be sure to 'do it
right' when I get to the Mesa side.
