I just tested libdrm 2.4.17 with --enable-radeon-experimental-api 
and mesalib git master. It's work quite good. Well, it worked
quite good before 
"Merge branch 'glsl-pp-rework-2'" (e195eab9093d2a6cf55a42b2e7789c9a381b778)
but this is separate matter.

So may be enabling libdrm_radeon is not such a bad idea.
