There is a security issue with its DMA code which is why it wasn't on
the main dri tree up until recently. I think now its on the tree with a
big warning and the dma code disabled by default. That is probably why
its not in the official tree.

Anyway, to get the correct reason the location is probably lkml or
dri-devel lists.
