    Quite frankly, the more I look at that commit, the worse it looks.

    That commit seems to _on_purpose_ try to avoid at all cost being
    compatible. It not only removes some old entry-points, it literally
    re-numbers all the ioctl numbers as it does so, apparently entirely in
    order to just make it difficult to have some libdrm that can handle both

    This all means that I literally cannot test the current -git tree.

    I suspect I have to revert it.

    Or is there a version of X that can handle _both_ the 0.0.15 and the
    0.0.16 interfaces?

    That's absolutely required - so that it's not a flag-day any more to
    upgrade the kernel, and so that people (including very much me) can test
    and bisect other things without having to worry about basic functionality
    coming and going as you bisect things,
