"Bump of the userspace interface to 0.0.16.
libdrm and nouveau drm have to be updated together for nouveau to keep
working. The kernel.org version will not work with the current git
user space for some time. See the kernel commit log for more
information. "

This means kernel.org tree does not work with libdrm git.
(so you can either use older git userspace or a newer nouveau drm module/kernel)

If this is not clear enough, do you have a suggestion for rephrasing
the paragraph on the frontpage ?

I suppose we could also add an entry in either Faq or Troubleshooting.
