X server drivers are usually discussed on one of the xorg mailing lists,
not mesa-dev.

You may want to check out the posted documentation on www.x.org before
asking questions, such as:
(also available as .txt or .pdf if you change the end of the URL)

Though those documents are not kept up to date very well.
