The issue with all of those formats is that the driver and core Mesa do
not support them. The only additional formats that we could expose now
are the 32-bit + 16-bit modes. For example, RGBA8888 with DEPTH16. A
fair amount of work would need to be done in Mesa to support >8-bits per
color component. FP32 depth would be less work, but I don't think
anyone is currently signed up to do it.
Patches welcome. :)
