Notice that if Branden would enable the driver-sdk patch i submitted

create a out-of-CVS build of the drivers package, which would nicely
divert the drivers like michel's dri-trunk packages does.
BTW, michel's dri-trunk package should be ok for you, since they are
built from a pre 4.4 tree from freedesktop.org.
