While the two kernels are the same version from portage they have of course
different EXTRAVERSION. For the kernel I compiled for dri I simply added
'-dri' to EXTRAVERSION. So when running uname -r it yielded 2.6.15-r1-dri.
The previous kernel which I am running now lacks the '-dri'.

Unmerging x11-drm does not remove the kernel due to CONFIG_PROTECT.
--- cfgpro obj /lib/modules/2.6.15-gentoo-r1-dri/x11-drm/radeon.ko
--- cfgpro obj /lib/modules/2.6.15-gentoo-r1-dri/x11-drm/r128.ko

--- cfgpro dir /lib/modules/2.6.15-gentoo-r1-dri/x11-drm
I do, however, believe that this output proves that I am not running the
x11-drm modules since it does contain '-dri'.

I'm not really sure what you by this. Why does that mean that I'm using the
