libdrm - userspace library for drm

This is libdrm, a userspace library for accessing the DRM, direct rendering
manager, on Linux, BSD and other operating systems that support the ioctl
The library provides wrapper functions for the ioctls to avoid exposing the
kernel interface directly, and for chipsets with drm memory manager, support
for tracking relocations and buffers.
New functionality in the kernel DRM drivers typically requires a new libdrm,
but a new libdrm will always work with an older kernel.

libdrm is a low-level library, typically used by graphics drivers such as
the Mesa drivers, the X drivers, libva and similar projects.


To set up meson:

    meson builddir/

By default this will install into /usr/local, you can change your prefix
with --prefix=/usr (or `meson configure builddir/ -Dprefix=/usr` after 
the initial meson setup).

Then use ninja to build and install:

    ninja -C builddir/ install

If you are installing into a system location you will need to run install
separately, and as root.
