Description Gordon Jin 2010-07-20 18:27:06 UTC
piglit/tests/glslparsertest/glsl2/draw_buffers-05.vert was changed (http://cgit.freedesktop.org/piglit/commit/?id=48fc4beee7ae3818eef746396749be5e00ae670a) to expect GL_ARB_draw_buffers supported in vertex shader (for version 1.10).

But mesa glsl2 branch still considers not to support it in vertex shader:
   } else if (strcmp(name, "GL_ARB_draw_buffers") == 0) {
      /* This extension is only supported in fragment shaders.
      if (state->target != fragment_shader) {
         unsupported = true;
      } else {
         state->ARB_draw_buffers_enable = (ext_mode != extension_disable);
         state->ARB_draw_buffers_warn = (ext_mode == extension_warn);

so the piglit case fails to compile with error: 
extension `GL_ARB_draw_buffers' unsupported in vertex shader

It passes with mesa master branch.

As mentioned in the comment in the test, I'm not 100% sure which behavior is correct.  Nvidia and ATI each do the opposite in their compilers, and the spec (GL_ARB_draw_buffers) doesn't provide any guidance.

I'm decreasing the severity.

    glsl: Remove shader stage checking for extension handling.
    Certain extensions only add functionality to particular shader stages.
    (For example, ARB_draw_instanced only adds variables to the vertex
    shader stage.)
    Previously, we only allowed such extensions to be enabled in the shader
    stages where they're useful.  However, I've never found any text which
    mandates that behavior; in my opinion, you should be able to turn on
    extensions in any shader stage, even if they have no effect.
    Fixes Piglit tests glslparsertest/glsl2/draw_buffers-05.vert and

Xun, please help verify.

Verified it on mesa 10.2 branch.
