I haven't had time yet to look at the patch itself (I'm on vacation and
back next week), but having XA recognize handle types, in particular
dma-buf fds is, IMO a good thing.

Regarding adding new interfaces to XA, the XA documentation is pretty
explicit about how this should be handled and recognized, with version
numbers. As long as all XA users follow this, it should be pretty
straightforward also in a stable mesa branch. IIRC, the XA minor must be
bumped in this case, and an out-of-mesa-tree user can't rely on the
symbol being present, since an old libxatracker with the same major
number might be present, but needs to use dlsym() or something similar.
