There is much more needed. Especially these could use some more testing:

mesa: implement texfetch functions for depth_buffer_float
mesa: implement stencil unpacking for GL_FLOAT_32_UNSIGNED_INT_24_8_REV
mesa: implement depth unpacking for GL_FLOAT_32_UNSIGNED_INT_24_8_REV
mesa: implement texstore for DEPTH32F_STENCIL8 (the slow path)
mesa: implement depth/stencil renderbuffer wrapper accessors for
Z32F_X24S8 (no sure how to test this on Gallium)
gallium/util: implement software Z32F_S8X24 depth-stencil clear

Moreover, all the stencil drawpixels and copypixels tests were failing
with any format on softpipe and r600g when I tried it.
