FWIW, I relaxed the format restrictions in brw_blorp_copytexsubimage, so it 
can handle general format conversions as well (i.e. RGBA_FLOAT16 -> 
RGBA8888_UNORM).  There's no reason we couldn't do that for BlitFramebuffer as 
well, I just forgot to do it (and then we decided to make it a newbie task, 
and then the newbie didn't do said task, and...oops.)

A couple of games do BlitFramebuffer with format conversions, IIRC.  I think 
DOTA 2 does 1010102 -> 8888 blits.
