Or wait for 6.2 ... although of course nobody can tell for sure that
your hardware will be actually supported by then. One thing you could
try is get a very current Linux LiveCD distribution (like Knoppix,
Kanotix or the Kororaa Xgl Live CD) and check if 3d acceleration seems
to work there. If it does not, there's probably no point in updating or
trying to make a patch against RELENG_6_1, since the codebase is the
mostly the same in Linux and FreeBSD.
