Issues

1) What about the VkPipelineMultisampleStateCreateInfo state sampleShadingEnable and minSampleShading?

UNRESOLVED
  • sampleShadingEnable and minSampleShading are required when compiling the fragment shader, and it is not meaningful to set them dynamically since they always need to match the fragment shader state, so this hardware state may as well just come from the pipeline with the fragment shader.
