What about just "mesa"? I think "mesa" is more recognizable, and
adequately descriptive of the backend's target driver model and APIs.
I don't think Mesa has or will have significant competing non-dri
backends. Having said that, I am fine with either "dri" or "mesa".

Whatever the final choice, I think this is something we are better off
doing early in the cycle (i.e. soon), since it's when we have a window
for non-feature oriented work.
