On my system I got the same output of glxinfo using drivers from unstable (270.41.19-1) after an 
upgrade of mesa related packages.
Downgrading mesa related packages with "aptitude install '~i?source-package(mesa)=7.10.2-3'" caused 
glxinfo to display normal output again.
During the upgrade to 7.10.2-4, 1 nvidia related diversion was removed (don't know which one 
exactly, but you can probably figure that out from the original bug report) and the downgrade didn't 
restore it, but as said glxinfo did provide normal output again.

Indeed, thanks for the great work!
