Make selection between DRI2 and DRI3 consistent with other drivers. (v2)
Add Option "DRI" to allow selection of maximum DRI level. This allows the user to select the maximum level of DRI implementation to use, DRI2 or DRI3. It replaces the old option "DRI3" which had exactly the same purpose, but differs from the method used in both intel ddx and nouveau ddx. Make this consistent before a new stable driver is released. v2: Retain handling of old Option "DRI3" for backwards compatibility, but Option "DRI" will take precedence over "DRI3" if both are provided.
