I'm a complete newbie when it comes to the i965 driver, but why would
intel_update_state() get called in between sequential draws? The idea
is that you can do things like

tex0 = tex;
fb = tex;

which is actually exactly what the blending-in-shader piglit does. So
there should be no extra state updates between them. Am I missing

However blending-in-shader uses piglit_draw_rect, which probably does
horrible things like immediate vertices and/or changing vbo's, which
in turn could trigger a flush?
