gallium-xlib: query MIT-SHM before using it.

When Mesa is compiled for gallium-xlib using e.g.
./configure --enable-glx=gallium-xlib --disable-dri --disable-gbm
and is used by an X server (usually remotely via SSH X11 forwarding)
that does not support MIT-SHM such as XMing or MobaXterm, OpenGL
clients report error messages such as
Xlib:  extension "MIT-SHM" missing on display "localhost:11.0".
ad infinitum.

The reason is that the code in src/gallium/winsys/sw/xlib uses
MIT-SHM without checking for its existence, unlike the code
in src/glx/drisw_glx.c and src/mesa/drivers/x11/xm_api.c.
I copied the same check using XQueryExtension, and tested with
glxgears on MobaXterm.
