2D apps can render to buffers in that format.  It is just Mesa that
never reports an EGLConfig using the format when i915/i965 is in use.

But we still allow EGLImageKHR to be created from buffers in the
format.  It can be used with glEGLImageTargetTexture2D and this usage
is quite common.  But when the EGLImageKHR is used with
glEGLImageTargetRenderbufferStorage, GL_INVALID_OPERATION should be
generated (which I missed).
