The Qualcomm Adreno 430 is now supported by the Freedreno Gallium3D driver.

After all of the other Qualcomm Adreno A4xx work was done in the Freedreno Gallium3D driver, it just ended up being adding "430" to a switch statement to make the 3D support work, per this commit.

Interestingly, this Adreno 430 patch itself came from a Google developer. The Adreno 430 is used by the Snapdragon 810 (APQ8094, MSM8994) SoC.
