So the situation is "funnier" than expected:
- There are at least two users of via_drm.h (mesa and xf86-video-via)
with each providing different via_drmclient.h.
- Neither of the two projects includes the latter header, despite
that it uses the macros defined within.
- via_drm.h is included via multiple headers, so adding extra ifdef
guards sounds like a bad idea.
- While new version of the ddx can be released, a mesa one is
unlikely - 7.11.2 was released ~4 years ago.
- Even if we cover the above two project, other projects (how many,
where are they hosted, etc.) may need the same treatment.
With the above said I'd suspect that we're safer leaving the include
as is ? Yes, it is busted if one tries to use the standalone header,
jet (most/all?) official users rely on that behaviour :-\
