D3D12: De-duplicate sampler heap allocations.

Allows bindgroups that use the same samplers to share
a descriptor heap allocation. This is particularly important
for sampler heaps which incur expensive pipeline flushes
due to the smaller size requiring more frequent switches.

The device dolls out entries to a sampler heap allocation cache.
When the BindGroup is created, it does a lookup and refs the
allocation. This ensures the cache does not grow unbounded
or needlessly store unused entires.

This change is a follow-up of de-coupling heaps.

Dawn, a WebGPU implementation

Dawn is an open-source and cross-platform implementation of the work-in-progress WebGPU standard. More precisely it implements webgpu.h that is a one-to-one mapping with the WebGPU IDL. Dawn is meant to be integrated as part of a larger system and is the underlying implementation of WebGPU in Chromium.

Dawn provides several WebGPU building blocks:

  • WebGPU C/C++ headers that applications and other building blocks use.
    • The webgpu.h version that Dawn implements.
    • A C++ wrapper for the webgpu.h.
  • A “native” implementation of WebGPU using platforms' GPU APIs:
    • D3D12 on Windows 10
    • Metal on macOS and iOS
    • Vulkan on Windows, Linux, ChromeOS, Android and Fuchsia
    • OpenGL as best effort where available
  • A client-server implementation of WebGPU for applications that are in a sandbox without access to native drivers
