EXT_blend_logic_op *was* previously enabled.  r200CreateContext called
driInitExtensions( ctx, card_extensions, GL_TRUE );.  The GL_TRUE
parameter tells driInitExtensions to call
_mesa_enable_imaging_extensions.  _mesa_enable_imaging_extensions in
turn enables:


I didn't see anything in r200_state.c to handle blend equation being set

Of course, we have *zero* piglit tests for this extension.

That's a good point.  I suspect that no hardware actually handles this
case correctly.  I seem to recall that this is the reason NVIDIA doesn't
support GL_EXT_blend_logic_op in their drivers.  I know the non-Quadro
cards don't support it, anyway.

Does this work on later chips in the Radeon family?

I don't think anyone will miss GL_EXT_blend_logic_op if we just remove
it altogether.
