I don't know yet. For that I would have enable the master convertion function
for all code paths, then run all the piglit tests and then check the cases that
hit the assertion I have one by one removing duplicate cases, so it would take
some time.

In any case, even if these were a significant bunch: do we have a good
alternative? If we don't create mesa_formats for these types we would have to
handle them as exceptions to the process (and this kind of defeats the purpose
of a master function). We would have to handle conversions from and to these
types through different paths and write the conversions functions we need by
