It is irrelevant/unspecified because the X8 byte will (should) never be
interpreted (if there is no way around doing that, thank your hw designer).
The inverse operation (copying from X8 to A8) however is specified to
set A8 to 1 (0xff), see the bottom of tgsi.rst - if you can't swizzle
the X8 to 1 on/after texturing, you might want to employ the workaround
of setting the X8 byte to 0xff.
