Well if DRM would have very stable API - it would make sence - but from a view
of occasional user who needs to compile drm for intel driver - it seems the
API is changed so frequently and in such an incompatible way that this change
doesn't look all that bad.
How many libdrm project users are there - and how often is this variable used
outside of libdrm ?
Now C++ will use different names for same variables - that IMHO bigger issue...
Also - if headers are supposed to be C++ friendly - maybe usage of
extern "C" might be handy for such case ?
