So, AIUI the new Intel KMS driver is very badly behaving, but you can
disable it and use the old framebuffer driver.

Have you tested this? I thought the 2.10 Intel Xorg driver
does not work without KMS.

I think not working without KMS is only for the newest chips. I'd expect i8xx
& i9xx chips to be in the old and KMS not required category.

Your assumptions are wrong. The only Intel GPUs not requiring KMS are
i810/i815. i830 and above use KMS.
