[Mesa-users] radeon_drv.so provided by xf86-video-ati and mesa

I've built xf86-video-ati and mesa from git. I have a r500 card and enabled 
Gallium for mesa. When I build those two packages each of them has the 
following file: "/usr/lib/xorg/modules/drivers/radeon_drv.so". This means if I 
install these two packages I got a conflict because of the file.

Xorg starts with the "radeon_drv.so" from xf86-video-ati but not with the one 
from mesa. What is the file from mesa used for? Is it meant to replace the file 
from DDX? Any clarification would be appreciated.
