You don't need CONFIG_DRM* (in fact, they will cause conflicting files
between your kernel-image and drm-trunk-module packages).

No, it's because the SIS DRI code isn't being well maintained. Just

It's not picking up the radeon.o from drm-trunk-module but the one from
your kernel, which is too old.

Not related, the DRI repository is missing code for XdmAuth. gdm works.
