I only get crashes from glxgears on aarch64, it works fine on the
amd64 desktop machine that I'm running Firefox on.

From the stack trace that Paul Goyette provided it looks to me like
a Firefox bug is triggering one in Mesa.

The crash is within _mesa_error() but this is called because of an
assertion near the start of _mesa_GetString().

_mesa_GetString( GLenum name )
   static const char *vendor = "Brian Paul";
   static const char *renderer = "Mesa";

   if (!ctx)
      return NULL;
