IIRC Marek added some threading code to the r300g and r600g drivers a year or so ago, although I'm not 100% sure about r600g. Believe the approach was that most of the Mesa code ran in the application thread while command submission to the kernel driver and associated kernel processing happened in a separate helper thread.
