It looks to me like this code was copied from some other place where
the in-memory format of data was ARGB in native-endian, rather than
gdk-pixbuf's fixed big-endian RGBA. (Which is also libpng's default
format.) I think the lines in questions can safely be removed.

Maybe you could extend testpixbuf-save to test the alpha case? Also, 
if you are using this code, you probably want to fix the silly:

                       for (j = 0, x = 0; x < w; x++)
                               memcpy (&(data[x*3]), &(ptr[x*3]), 3);

I don't think there is any reason for the code to have to rewrite
the data, either for the RGBA or the RGB code.
