Mesa builds with -D valgrind=false since https://git.archlinux.org/svntogit/packages.git/commit/trunk/PKGBUILD?h=packages/mesa&id=3a5dd7127b0dc49d74328131c3c190a9142110bb with no explanation. This makes valgrind produce a lot of unnecessary warnings since it doesn’t know about the various ioctl()s used by Mesa drivers, preventing the user from finding actual memory issues in their programs.

Additional info:
* package version(s)

* config and/or log files etc.

* link to upstream bug report, if any

Steps to reproduce:
- Install any program using OpenGL or Vulkan.
- Run it under valgrind.
Observe how many useless warnings there are, when Mesa isn’t built with -D valgrind=true.
This task depends upon
