It never is, unless you need a new kernel. :)

The latter won't do as kernel modules don't get unloaded automatically.

As a sidenote, the original problem has been documented in
/usr/share/doc/xserver-xfree86-dri-trunk/README.Debian for a long time,
and it wouldn't have occurred (as confusingly) with a 2.6 kernel because
it would have refused to load the incompatible module.
