[PATCH 0/1] [Jaunty] LP#308387 -- fix drm include collision with libdrm-dev

It seems we are currently have a file collision between linux-libc-dev
and libdrm-dev, both installing the drm kernel header files.  Although the
correct authoritive version are from the kernel, such that we would hope
to install those and remove the ones in the libdrm package, it seems that
the ones there have been manually modified to make them acceptable to the
X server.

Clearly long term this needs resolving and the changes made to the
headers folded back into the kernel, particularly as upstream Debian
has also included all of these files in their linux-libc-dev package.
We have a commitment for them to take on this task longer term.  In the
short term (before -alpha2) while the X server people sort out how they
are going to resolve this it is prudent for us to remove our copies from
the linux-libc-dev package.

Following this email is a patch to do just that.
