DRIVER_DATE is not maintained or upgraded on changes in many drm drivers.

For example radeon has one DRIVER_DATE for User and Kernel ModeSetting
driver, this makes no sense as UMS and KMS driver have different versions.
And of course this all increases maintenance, too.
For radeon it is enough to bump {KMS_}DRIVER_MAJOR, {KMS_}DRIVER_MINOR and

Furthermore, I also removed CORE_DATE.

With radeon-KMS my dmesg looks now like this:

[   12.328937] [drm] Initialized drm 1.1.0
[   13.144019] [drm] Initialized radeon 2.8.0 for 0000:01:00.0 on minor 0

Note: Tested with radeon RV250 (KMS) and linux-next (next-20101221).
