There is no llvm-2.9-1.mga2 in the mirrors, so your metadata is probably
out-of-date. llvm-2.9-2.mga2 doesn't provide libLLVM-2.9.so anymore, so
urpmi will install lib64llvm2.9 without asking.

Mesa DRI drivers have always been built against LLVM. However, I made a
change in the llvm package that causes software linking against it to be
linked dynamically instead of statically, causing packages built against
llvm (including mesa) to be considerably smaller, but require
(the net result is much smaller packages even while taking account the
added lib64llvm2.9)
