OpenGL warns "libGL error: MESA-LOADER: failed to retrieve device information" on Mesa 13.0.0 and later versions

Could this be solved by updating libdrm 2.4.71 -> 2.4.73 or newer version?

Debian (stretch, stable) has also been updated to newer release (2.4.74-1)

I know it's very minor bug, but very common to see on basically every glxinfo, anyway you could update Libdrm from 2.4.71 (updated in December 2016, past 10 months in week+)

One small bug fixed is always a start for something bigger :)

Does this cause any actual issues?
I have seen the same message every single time I run my own program on the Pi and a competitor product.
As far as I can tell, nothing is affected.
Current project: Handheld gaming / coding system.
Progress: Prototype complete, but has a tendency to burn the user.
Additional cooling required.
