It's not any different from splitting YUV codes from RGB codes; a
different color encoding with the same bitfields. And, for mesa, it's
necessary to differentiate between ARGB and SARGB within the same format
code given how the API is structured. So, we have choices:

 1) Let Mesa define it's own fourcc codes and risk future accidental
 2) Rewrite piles of mesa code to split out the color encoding from the
    bitfield information and pass it separately.

 3) Add "reasonable" format codes like this to the kernel fourcc list.
