i965 should support more texture image units. According to Delphi3D.net (http://delphi3d.net/hardware/viewreport.php?report=1454) the i915 supports 16 texture image units on Windows. Some games (e.g., Enemy Territory: Quake Wars) require more than the 8 texture image units supplied by the driver.
Supporting 8 texture coordinates, as is currently supported, seems sufficient.
It looks like the only thing blocking us from bumping both image and coord units is mesa core.

The title is wrong. It's really the sampling problem.
This bug is fixed by commits e9b34885b8ff2ccb67a801cd1ce07e0df1b0e397, 4a6ad999ea312f0af85de621c8b6a15a3d3b7ffd, and 2549c26a8b1eec21bdd8f45d3b3dd06e17ac82ae
