Depends how convoluted we want to get with our headers. ;) glibc
currently installs whatever headers comes with the kernel we told it to
compile with, but in this case those headers are too old. Once the glibc
headers are updated to 2.6.33 (once it's released) this specific problem
with xf86-video-intel will go away, but who knows about next release?
libdrm will (probably) always have newer DRM headers than the kernel, it
might be a good idea to use the libdrm headers rather than the kernel
headers. Perhaps strip the DRM headers from the kernel source before
glibc compiles/installs, then add libdrm as a dependency to any package
that needs it (should already be this way).
