The DRM needs to be imported into the tree, it hasn't been yet,
I'm unsure of the exact procedure I think we wait until 7.0rc1 is
ready to go perhaps? Mesa also needs to be imported with the 32/64 bit
fixes.. I've no idea what FreeBSD does , hence didn't touch their code
(I've little enough clue how Linux does it, people with a clue sent me
patches.. :-)...

So yes a handle is now 32-bits on Linux no matter what we run it on..
