  You mean one of these mesa branches: gallium-0.1, gallium-0.1-dri,
gallium-0.1-dri2?  I am betting the -dri2 one :-)

  I am not having much luck with mesa master neither the drm-gem branch,
so I "suppose" distros are supposed to ship gallium-0.1-dri2 as the
new "stable" mesa?

  Along wih X Server's server-1.5-branch and drm's libdrm-2_3-branch
as the stable branches?
