The atimisc driver does, but radeon shouldn't. You may get away with

make -C src {ati,radeon}_drv.la

with the old libdrm.

P.S. I think it really shouldn't require the new libdrm but just detect
the version and only build the stuff that needs the newer version when
it's there. George, if you read this... :)
