Not anymore. Now the drm drivers are developed directly within the linux 

Here's what the last commit to the driver directory says :

commit 28771e06dfe45027be6618f87335c19e8e88e3f6

     intel: Remove linux build of i915 DRM, as it's unmaintained and a 
user trap.

     The code's in the linux kernel.

I hope that's enough to convince you :)
