Yeah, it's in the first one. My bad. I didn't notice, because that one got
cancelled for other reasons and never even tested.
That doesn't change the simple basic issue: how are people with Fedora-12
going to test any kernel out now? And are there libdrm versions that can
handle _both_ cases, so that people can bisect things? IOW, even if you
have a new libdrm, will it then work with the _old_ kernel too?
Backwards compatibility is really important.
