IIRC both GLSL IR and Mesa IR took the approach that reading from
outputs was up to the driver to handle at some point. At the very
least classic r600 did reads from "output" gprs. I seem to recall that
some Intel hardware couldn't read from output registers, I'm not sure
if there was any other hardware.
