Many thanks for this work, Elie and Dave. I've tested the patches on
BARTS with nosb, piglit set all, -t fp64, and I get 2976 of 2995 test
pass, skip: 16, fail: 3 (like Elie pointed out: ssbo and arrays of
arrays are the culprits).

I'm wonderig a bit what is the subset that gives you 1375 piglits ...
