[DRI3] Problems on old Intel GPUs

It's difficult to run Fedora on old Intel graphics. From OpenGL 2.0 support
in Mesa lot of apps and (especially wine) games became unplayable because
the hardware doesn't support OpenGL 2 fully and lot of things are slower.

I have luck so I didn't encounter any boot or X launch issues :)

Does anybody see that Gnome Shell is much more slower on these GPUs
compared to for example KDE? Even compiz is smoother than mutter.
