SubjectPatch(?): linux-2.4.0-prerelease/drivers/char/drm/Makefile libdrm symbol versioning fix
	There is a thread in linux-kernel about how somewhere in
linux-2.4.0-test13-preX, the Makefile for drivers/char/drm started
building libdrm.a and not versioning the symbols. I believe the
following patch fixes the problem, but I have not tried it for the
nonmodular case.

The change is that libdrm.o is built instead of libdrm.a. This
object is linked into the kernel if at least one driver that needs it
is also linked into the kernel. Otherwise, it is built as a helper
module which is automatically loaded by modprobe when a module that
needs it is loaded. This change takes advantage of the new style
Makefile rules to achieve this end. I think it basically is the
correct approach, although I have not yet tested compilation into
the kernel.

Any testing and feedback would be appreciated.
