The old code did this for GL_DEPTH_COMPENENT uploads, it kept the
stencil values,
so I decided to keep it consistent and if you upload GL_STENCIL_INDEX
you get to keep
the depth pieces, though I'm not really sure if that is every going to
happen in reallife,
but since I preferred just making the code generic it didn't seem like
a major overhead.

Cool I'll merge it early next week if nothing else pops up, just want
to make my dumb piglit test a bit more useful.
