If any of this is an issue, then the whole DRI model just won't work ;-)

I'm thinking that the following should work. Please let me know if I'm
loosing the plot.

Caller sets the structure and sets version of the interface it
provides. Then callee first checks if it can work with the provider
version. then proceeds as planned.
Passing around multiple sizes is ugly and error prone to a point. One
gets the order wrong (swaps in_size and out_size) or just the same
sizeof(struct foo) in both places.
