That should be defined in the libdrm headers.  According to 
http://dri.freedesktop.org/libdrm/ there's a 2.4.0 release now, but I haven't 
seen the announcement yet... maybe Eric's mail didn't make it through?

Hm, that sounds bad...  What kind of DRM errors are you seeing?  If it's just 
	[drm:i915_getparam] *ERROR* Unknown parameter 5
	[drm:i915_getparam] *ERROR* Unknown parameter 5
that should be ok.  That's just the 2D driver checking for GEM (we should 
probably make the messages a little less threatening, but really they're 
normal for non-GEM configurations).

This is the "failed to pin back buffer" error?
