This series introduces support for blitting and CopyTexSubImage with
format conversions via the BLORP engine.  Previously, we fell back to
the meta paths, which fell back to unpack/pack code, which was pretty
dire for performance.

In particular, this series makes Legends of Aethereus (an RPG that
recently appeared on Steam) playable on Ivybridge.  Previously, it
was so slow that even mouse cursor movement was choppy.
