Assuming that distros were integrating things in order, they would have
tried to update the following versions

mesa 7.0.3 -> mesa 7.2
libdrm 2.3 -> libdrm 2.4.0
intel-2.4.2 -> intel-2.5.0

And they would have found that libdrm 2.4.0 broke things and not
integrated it.  So our answer is "we don't care about people who
integrated 2.4.0, as it was broken".  Thanks to Dave Airlie for tracking
it down quickly and making me fix it.
