OpenGL/ES texture format GL_BGRA broken in Intel BayTrail Android Driver

Dear all,

I tested my app on Android 4.4 with Intel(R) HD Graphics for BayTrail , OpenGL ES-CM 1.1, and unfortunately no textures were shown at all.

I now tracked down the problem: Even though the Intel BayTrail driver reports to support the extension GL_EXT_texture_format_BGRA8888, using glTexImage2D with format GL_BGRA seems to create a mess, so that no more textures are displayed at all. All is fine if GL_RGBA is used instead.

Test system was an Asus Transformer Pad TF103C.

It is named in the inf file for the driver:
but the file that is in the folder is named - this is the name for the 32bit OS driver.

So this is what I did to fix it.
