_mesa_base_fbo_format() also serves as an error checking function so 
that invalid internalFormat parameters to glRenderBufferStorage() are 

We need to reject compressed formats, index formats, dudv formats, 
ycbcr formats, etc.  I think we lost that with your change.  Maybe we 
need to pass a 'renderable' flag into the function so we can do the 
extra checking.

If _mesa_base_tex_format() is going to be overloaded with FBO format 
checking, the comment on that function needs to be updated.  Maybe 
even rename _mesa_base_tex_format() to _mesa_base_surface_format() or 
something like that to make it clear that it's not just used for 
texture internal formats.

The original comment was correct- they're similar functions, but not 
the same.
