Sure, at least this conversion is hitting that:


This comes from this piglit test:

I think what is going on is that the src argument here is defined as
GL_RGBA_INTEGER and GL_UNSIGNED_INT_10_10_10_2, which I map to
MESA_FORMAT_A2B10G10R10_UNORM instead of MESA_FORMAT_A2B10G10R10_UINT (we don't
have MESA_FORMAT_A2B10G10R10_UINT, so that's why). This works because they have
the same pixel layout, so the conversion is the same, but then we hit this

Should we add the mesa_formats for MESA_FORMAT_A2B10G10R10_UINT and
MESA_FORMAT_A2R10G10B10_UINT too? (currently we only have
