[Bf-committers] Please add invert green channel option in Normal Map node

I actually just ran into a case where I wanted to compare the custom normals I set up in Blender to those inside another app, so there is a use-case for real-time toggling as well.

No idea how prevalent it is and whether it's worth the effort though, but figured I'd chime in.

Is this only needed during import & export, or something you would toggle
during the Blender session?
