iris: Change vendor and renderer strings

Graphics / Mesa 3D Graphics Library / Mesa - Kenneth Graunke [whitecape.org] - 16 April 2019 17:27 EDT

This patch changes the GL_VENDOR string from "Mesa Project" to "Intel". This makes GLX_MESA_query_renderer report "Vendor: Intel (0x8086)" instead of "Vendor: Mesa Project (0x8086)" which is arguably wrong. We now also use a consistent vendor string across Windows and Linux.

It also prepends "Mesa" to the GL_RENDERER string, both to credit the community and have a distinguishing mark between the two drivers. We drop "DRI" compared to i965, as it's not really that important.

Improves performance in Portal by 1.8x. Iris is now 3.86% faster than i965 at the portal-d1.dem timedemo on my Kabylake laptop. One change is that Portal selects the MapBufferRange path based on the
vendor string, and iris's BufferSubData path is still missing the storage invalidation optimization.
