since version 0.1.0 you will not need DRM from GIT anymore. You just can
use DRM as provided by the standard kernel shipped with debian 5.0
(lenny). This should ease the handling of the patch (see [2]).

In the course of that I concentrated the patches in

drm-radeon-intel.patch (version 0.0.11 and older)
fb-radeon-intel.patch

to one file

fb-drm-radeon-intel.patch (since version 0.1.0)

Cheers
