X should work with vesa and other non drm related drivers.

I'm not sure if the current also userspace stuff is still supporting that 
kernel. I haven't tested it. No idea why it fails for you. Maybe a simple 
alsaconf can bring it back. At least I'd like to keep shipping sound 
modules. There are server running mpd that need a configured card.

I don't want to strip out everything that maybe no more fully operate on 
current desktops. There's still situations where it might be helpfull to 
have such stuff included (e.g. running "corporate" desktops).

To me these are no stoppers.

But if something is completely broken for the future I can remove modules 
for the next release.
