I made a symlink from /usr/X11R7/lib/modules/dri/ to and Mesa started trying to do Lima stuff and made the
kernel panic. This was what I wanted to be able to start debugging
the kernel code.

To avoid needing local diffs to Mesa it would probably be a good idea
if we used the same names for ARM framebuffer drm drivers as the Linux
ones, will follow up on this to port-arm@.
