[Intel-gfx] [RFC] splitting dri-devel to drm core and drivers lists?

There was some discussion on the dim-tools list about splitting the
dri-devel list to drm core and drivers lists [1]. Moving the discussion
to the list in question seems prudent. ;)

I freely admit I don't have the time or interest in reading the patches
for other drivers than i915, but I do glance over almost everything
touching drm core.

I'd like to encourage i915 developers to stay up to date on what's
happening in drm core, but the firehose of dri-devel can be a bit
daunting to handle. From this perspective the S/N on dri-devel is not
great. YMMV, obviously.

Feels overkill to require all small drivers to have lists of their own,
and that would also be counter productive to the ideal that they'd try
to review each other's work. Hence the idea of having a, say,
dri-drivers or drm-drivers list.
