I'm not against guessing this stuff, but we know have much better format
handling code than when this code was originally written. I just want to
use that (like it's used everywhere else in this file now). fb->format
gives you the right depth, no guessing needed at all.

And if you guess wrong here, you'll fail in these format checks later on.
