I've updated the geometry shader so that given a triangle with adjacency, 3
triangles will be emitted:

  - the triangle formed by the first edge and the first adjacent vertex
  - the triangle formed by the second edge and the second adjacent vertex
  - the triangle formed by the third edge and the third adjacent vertex

and the color is decided by the respective adjacent vertices.

The vertex array is updated to consist of 8 vertices (2 triangles), which
layout just like the diagram in the D3D doc, except the diagram has 14 vertices
(5 triangles).  The color of the adjacent vertices for the first and second
triangles are red and green respectively.

With this setup, you can find the results of the running the demo with master
and draw-decompose-2 branches, and with nVidia's driver on Windows.

This says nothing about D3D triangle strip with adjacency, but it now seems to
follow wat nVidia's OpenGL driver does.
