The lack of transparency in my explanation :-)

True. But the test might be assuming that alpha is always 255, thus it
expects that the output for XRGB and ARGB type formats is the same.

Obviously the likely-hood of all that is negligible, esp. considering
the benefit that the patch brings.

I'm picking libdrm patches off the list as we speak, which will include
both of these.
