This extension extends EGL_KHR_image_base and enables the creation of an EGLImage an EGLNativePixmapType.

Note: This extension is not explicitly exposed on PowerVR hardware but is implied as supported whenever EGL_KHR_image is present, as it is a compound extension which includes both this and EGL_KHR_image_base.
