[Piglit] [PATCH] util: Fix visual selection when using waffle

There is one test fdo25614-genmipmap which reproduces a bug only
occuring with a framebuffer without alpha. If we enforce RGBA
everywhere, not only would the test be useless, but also we'd end up
with the RGBX framebuffer config mostly untested.

While it's useful to have RGBA framebuffers in most tests, we should
not remove support for RGBX framebuffers entirely.
