Intel ILO Gallium3D Driver Updated For Broadwell

While Intel's official Mesa DRI driver has supported "Gen8" Broadwell graphics for many months, today the support for these latest-generation HD/Iris Graphics processors landed within the unofficial ILO Gallium3D driver.

Given that Broadwell designs are only now starting to ship at scale, the turnaround time for the ILO Gallium3D driver supporting Broadwell isn't that bad. ILO continues to be the work of mostly Chia-I Wu, a developer at LunarG. LunarG continues to invest in ILO namely as a Gallium3D proving ground and for experimenting with new driver features, etc.

Via a ton of ILO Gen8 commits today the initial Broadwell support landed within this Gallium3D driver. Coming up shortly I'll try to test out the Broadwell ILO support, but if it's anything like Haswell, ILO trails Intel's "classic" driver.
