I'm wondering what the blob did?
I suppose you could always just lie - if the tests only care about the
query and never actually test it you could get away with it...
I mean, before GL 4.4, it was not even queryable and was supposed to
always work no matter the stride, but in reality it would just silently
I was merely pointing out the limit there was probably intentional (so,
if lying is the answer, I'd suggest a comment at least). (And I didn't
verify what the hw really does with stride 0.)
I guess alternatively you could fix it up in the vertex fetch shader
(so, program stride 1024 in this case and lshift the id-to-fetch by 2 -
albeit I do not actually understand how the VTX_FETCH_VERTEX_DATA and
VTX_FETCH_INSTANCE_DATA work, but nevertheless I suppose it should be
fixable to patch it up somehow).
