Hi Jerome,

I skimmed over the patches and how libdrm interacts with r600g and it
looks good.

We don't generally include DRM-specific headers in radeon_winsys.h,
because that header is supposed to be cross-platform, but I guess we
can make an exception in this case as long as we keep radeon_surface.h
