Correct.  However, this isn't entirely our fault.  Our gallium-0.1
branch is just a mirror of the main one, with our drivers thrown into
the mix; so it lacks support for the latest changes.  Recently some work
has been done on a gallium-0.1-dri2 branch which brings gallium into
line with recent DRI changes, I'll likely merge it into the nouveau tree
at some point soon.

Nope, and the gallium drivers don't live in master anyway :)
