Yeah, as mentioned in that link, it's pretty hacky.  One thing to note
is that __REALLY_HAVE_SG should be left to 0 on NetBSD until the busdma
stuff is done to the sg bits, rather than simply using malloc instead of
contigmalloc (which will cause crashing if the user happens to use more
than one page's worth of page table entries).

I'd love to see a NetBSD maintainer pick up the DRM bits and get stuff
integrated again upstream (DRI CVS).
