I'd be tempted to drop the FBO-related pieces of this and just do
piglit_rgbw_texture() and then glGenerateMipmap that texture.  When I
wrote fbo-generatemipmap we were in dire need of more FBO-related
testing, and I needed more experience writing FBO code.  Now I feel a
lot less of both of those issues.
