OpenSWR should give better performance than llvmpipe on AVX and AVX2 enabled CPUs (there are some CPUs without an iGPU, like the Intel 6900K)

Additional info:
mesa 17.0.0-2

Diff for PKGBUILD of mesa 17.0.0-3 to enable OpenSWR:
< --with-gallium-drivers=r300,r600,radeonsi,nouveau,svga,swrast,virgl,swr \
> --with-gallium-drivers=r300,r600,radeonsi,nouveau,svga,swrast,virgl \
< cp -rv ${srcdir}/fakeinstall/usr/lib/* ${pkgdir}/usr/lib/
< cp -rv ${srcdir}/fakeinstall/usr/lib/* ${pkgdir}/usr/lib/
