The OpenGL specification indicates that the glBitmap operation should
generate fragments. It says:
Bitmaps are rectangles of zeros and ones specifying a
particular pattern of fragments to be produced. [OpenGL 3.0 §
I recently added the occlusion_query_meta_fragments test to piglit to
ensure this behavior. It executes a glBitmap operation within an
occlusion query, expecting a result of the same number as pixels as
set in the bitmap.
This test currently fails, (the occlusion query reports 0 fragments
rather than the expected 8 fragments for a 4x4 bitmap with 8 of the 16
