    Yes it should - we can have a 64-bit X server and a 32-bit DRI
    client. In this case the server will allocate a _DRM_SHM area and
    pass the handle to the client, which will then try to mmap the area.
    If we give a 64-bit handle to the server the client won't be able to
    access the area.
