CONFIG_DRM_LEGACY: Enable legacy drivers (DANGEROUS)

General informations

The Linux kernel configuration item CONFIG_DRM_LEGACY:

Help text

Enable legacy DRI1 drivers. Those drivers expose unsafe and dangerous APIs to user-space, which can be used to circumvent access restrictions and other security measures. For backwards compatibility those drivers are still available, but their use is highly inadvisable and might harm your system.

You are recommended to use the safe modeset-only drivers instead, and perform 3D emulation in user-space.

Unless you have strong reasons to go rogue, say "N".
