We typically do not do wholesale upgrades of drivers in older releases.
There's just too much churn happening to keep up with it.  Mesa is
particularly problematic since it has complex build interdependencies
with the X server itself.  I hope to be able to change this stance at
sonme point in the future, but F9 is really the first release where I
might feel comfortable starting to do that.

If you have specific problems that are fixed by updating to newer
packages, we can investigate either backporting the fixes or updating
the driver.
