 Failed to link: error: shader uses too many varying components (44 > 40)

 (EE) GLSL link failure

AFAICT this limit is the same for all GPUs supported by r300g.

They don't affect gtkperf according to my tests with radeonsi. But FWIW they
should make core text rendering (e.g. used by xterm and some other terminal
emulators by default) faster than with EXA.

Even if that's still true, r300g advertises OpenGL 2.1 support, and with that
