It doesn't need to be the same version. All DRI component versions are
checked and errors printed if they don't allow for direct rendering.

It's not a matter of compiling against the kernel modules, on the
contrary the source for them is in the XFree86 tree. The problems are
that most kernel trees haven't been updated to the DRM versions required
for 4.2.0 yet and the modules need to be built against the headers of the
running kernel. The latter could be solved with a kernel module source
package for use with kernel-package.
