Well a prerequisite for OpenCL would be PIPE_CAP_ADVANCED_SAMPLERS and  
with that cap the state tracker shouldn't use PIPE_TEXTURE_RECT for  
GL_TEXTURE_RECT but instead normal 2D textures and then just use  
unnormalized/normalized as it see fit. Or just make  
treated as normal 2D target. Either one is fine, but for now we don't  
have to worry about this.

Cheers Jakob.
