[OpenJDK 2D-Dev] D3D pipeline not working with latest intel-drivers on sandy bridge

We would have to take a look at whether to revisit this but back when 
the pipeline
was implemented there was not a single Intel chipset we could rely upon.
We only enabled it for ATI & Nvidia chipsets.

JavaFX enables on Intel HD and later chips but also doesn't enable it on 
any of
the Intel chipsets that were around when the 2D decisions were made.

Since OpenGL is an optional pipeline and that's at your risk I expect
we did not apply the same criteria. Actually a lot of the OGL drivers
were flaky for most vendors ..
