Maybe we should make OpenCL errors non-fatal for the "--test" runs,
letting further formats be tested anyway?  This will require proper
deallocation of OpenCL resources on such errors, though.

I think it can be useful to quickly see that e.g. 2 out of 400 formats
failed, and 398 worked - just like we have for incorrect computation
errors.  I understand we won't always have this anyway, since sometimes
a format will segfault or otherwise crash the process and we only have
one process for all of the tests currently, but for OpenCL errors like
the above, we probably can proceed with further tests.
