Certainly not, but it was done by Dave in commit 2036eaa7403 ("nouveau:
bring back legacy mmap handler") for compatibility with old
xf86-video-nouveau versions (older than 1.0.4) that call DRIOpenDRMMaster.
If that is really necessary, it probably has been broken in Linus' tree
by commit bed2dd8421 where the test has been moved to ttm_bo_mmap() and
returns -EINVAL on failure.
