I've been busy trying to get a release out the door, so I haven't looked
at these patches yet.  I won't have a chance to look at the patches
until at least late next week.  I also wasn't at FOSDEM, so I don't have
any of the background info.

If these patches try to enforce a "stable" interface between core Mesa
and the classic DRI drivers, we're not interested.  At all.  This has
been discussed and rejected many, many times before.
