    In an ideal world, you shouldn't be forced to update anything except
    some/all of the driver bits.

    But the fact that libdrm is lumped together as it is, and that mesa is a
    monolith, forces you to update a more significant portion of your
    system. You have to resort to some serious manual labour to get around
    that atm.
