I was investigating the DRI extension API of the xserver & i was
particularly looking into the XF86DRICreateContext API.

As i see when client sends this request to xserver, in response to this
Xserver creates a drm context & pass it to the client.Client then sends
this drm context to the 3D driver which uses this drm context to talk to
the graphics h/w via drm kernel module.

Now, my question is why do i need to create the drm context through
xserver.As my 3D driver also links to libdrm, why can't i create the drm
context from the 3D driver itself?
