The summary is the commit message though?

Anyway without this I can't load dri drivers at all on OpenBSD
with mesa 10.x.  FreeBSD/NetBSD/Solaris/etc would also be broken
which strikes me as rather serious breakage...

udev is only available on Linux so every other platform
that uses dri is currently broken.
