Bug Description

[Impact]

A new upstream bugfix release is available. Release note diff compared to 17.2.2:

"Mesa 17.2.3 is now available.

In this release we have:

The Vulkan drivers ANV and RADV have multiple small fixes.

The EGL code has improved handling of the new wl_dmabuf codepath.

SWR no longer crashes when checking environment variables.

Other gallium drivers have also seen updates - freedreno, nouveau and
radeonsi. The gallivm module, used by llvmpipe et al. has gained little
endian PPC64 fixes.

The VA and VDPAU state-trackers have seems improvements handling
interlaced videos.

We're using python3 compatible constructs which gives us SCons 3.0
support."

"Mesa 17.2.4 is now available.

In this release we have:

In Mesa Core we have included a change to prevent KOTOR from breaking
when in combination with the ATI fragment shader extension.
Additionally, NIR has also received a correction.

Mesa's state tracker has gotten a patch to avoid leaks in certain
situations like when resizing a window.

Intel drivers have received several fixes. The compiler has gotten a
couple, while anv also received one. i965 got a patch to avoid VA-
API, Beignet and other contexts in the system to break when in
combination with previous versions of Mesa 17.2.x.

AMD's compiler has received a couple of fixes while radv has also
received another couple, including one to avoid a hang due to an
overflow on huge textures.

Broadcom's vc4 has corrected a problem when compiling with Android's
clang.

clover has also seen fixed a problem compiling after a specific clang
revision.

Vulkan's WSI has gotten plugged a memory leak for X11."

[Test case]

Test typical use cases on the most common hw/driver combinations:
intel/i965
nvidia/nouveau
radeon/radeonsi

[Regression potential]

These releases are tested against compliance, bugfix releases in particular have minimal risk of regressing anything major at least.
