I put the list back on CC because someone there might know about the
drmMap problem.

Yes. This shouldn't appear in your log if DRM is working:
| libGL error: drmMap of framebuffer failed (Cannot allocate memory)
| libGL error: reverting to (slow) indirect rendering

This might be caused by wine blocking the address space used for kernel
addresses in real windows, or it might be a misconfiguration or
installation problem of the ATI driver. Cross-checking with glxgears is

But even if non-functional DRM causes CreateSurface to fail you are
right that the testcase should handle that.
