i810 is even older and will never actually compile.

I got the legacy driver to compile yesterday, but it hangs up
completely. This Q35 system is forced to use the legacy driver, as this
system doesn't like UXA, and so doesn't work with xf86-video-intel. Not
with KMS, not without KMS. The framebuffer console itself works and
switches to the correct mode, but the screen stays blank when starting
up X. Switching back to console still works though.
