Nice find Matt. I've updated the commit message as follows:
The documentation of xcb_connection_has_error() does not mention
what will happen, if NULL is fed to the function.
Upon closer look (props to Matt), it seems that we'll crash as the
implementation dereferences conn.
This will also allow us to remove the dri2_dpy->conn checking with the
v2: Reword commit message as per Matt's findings.
