Currently you can not pick only intel agp code, agp module have
support for other vendors too.
I made patch but it was never committed because it saves only few
bytes of running kernel memory and thats all.
Because bunch of new agp* modules are created it increase kernel size
on disk, if you build all agp modules.

But if you have very little memory you better not to use Xorg and
direct rendering at all.
