I discussed this with some people in Khronos, and I've been convinced
that we're slightly misinterpreting the spec on this topic. The
behavior mentioned in the spec is concerned with the internalFormat (and
the GL-selected internalFormat) supplied to glRenderbufferStorage and
friends. In this case, BGRA is *not* an internalFormat that an
application can request. A driver can choose to use that ordering, but
it should be transparent to the application.
All of the possible formats are in table 3.16 and table 4.11 in the
OpenGL 3.0 spec.
Based on that, I think we should treat all of the permutations of RGBAn
as equivalent. That is, MESA_FORMAT_ARGB8888 can blit to
MESA_FORMAT_ARGB8888_REV can blit to
MESA_FORMAT_RGBA8888 because the all map to RGBA8 in table 3.16. If we
had a function that could map a MESA_FORMAT_ back to a GL
internalFormat, we could just compare those.
