Intel ILO Gallium3D Driver Sees New Improvements

For users of the unofficial Intel Gallium3D driver, ILO, it's been updated with some minor improvements.

The ILO Gallium3D driver continues to be the principal work of Chia-I Wu at LunarG where this driver is worked on for experimenting with Gallium3D and new potential improvements/optimizations to Mesa/Gallium3D by the consulting firm working on lowering driver overhead, etc. ILO Gallium3D still doesn't have the official blessing of Intel and the performance is generally slower than the Intel classic DRI driver.

Chia-I Wu this week added a new disassembler to the driver and introduced a new ilo_builder for building buffer objects for submission. You can learn more about these changes via the Mesa Git viewer. These improvements are present for Mesa 10.4-devel.
