X.Org 7.2 final: Patch to ignore requests for loading obsolete drm module

Stefan's question was: could his attached patch (libdrm.diff) be integrated 
upstream to prevent starting X unsuccessfully with a driver as fglrx (see his 
bug https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=9367) ?
Blacklisting a module or merging blacklists was not the question.
Stefan has integrated his patch in today's openSUSE xorg-x11-server rpm 
This fixes at least Xorg 7,2 RC3 with ATI fglrx 8.32.5. So, if other 
modules/drivers call xf86LoadSubModule() directly with name == "drm", his 
patch _could_ be a solution.
_This_ is the question.
