Bug Description

[Impact]
Mesa in zesty has dropped libgles1-mesa, slightly ahead of upstream. Backporting mesa to xenial & yakkety requires packages that depend on it to stop doing that.

Nothing really should depend on OpenGL ES v1 (GLESv1), which was meant for fixed-function GPU's, and we don't support those anyway. For a reference, Fedora never enabled support for it in Mesa.

[Test case]
Check that vlc / libopentk1.1-cil are installable together with Mesa 17.0.x

[Regression potential]
GLESv1 is not needed by anything really, so there shouldn't be a risk of regressing any use case.
