I've been trying to bisect upstream between mesa_7_7_1 and mesa-7.8, 
without any success. A large part of the commit tree for r600 between 
7.7.1 and 7.8 FTBFS with any debian libdrm-dev version I tried since 
2.4.15-1, stating:

  In file included from radeon_common.h:4,
                   from radeon_screen.c:49:
  radeon_common_context.h:405: error: array type has incomplete element type

I've searched around a bit and this seems to be due to some libdrm API 

This is taking too much time, I can't do this remotely since I have to 
be able to reboot the machine and furthermore, this is my work machine.  
Unless someone can provide some advice regarding the build process, I'll 
have to give up :(.
