PEP 461 says that all numeric bytes formatting codes will work as they do for str. In particular b"%x" % val is equivalent to ("%x" % val).encode("ascii"). But this is wrong with current implementation:

>>> '%x' % 3.14
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
TypeError: %x format: an integer is required, not float
>>> b'%x' % 3.14

The same is for %X, %o and %c.

Raising TypeError on non-integer input to %c, %o, %x, and %X was added in issue19995.
