Tried legacy driver in question here (against ironlake chip): it is also
compiled/installed. However as soon as X starts blank screen appears and
seems only reboot allows to get laptop functional. I.e. there is no way
to kill X or to switch to another console (though machine is available
via network connection). Even after logging in remotely and killing X
screen remains blank. Turning DRI off (Option DRI "false", commenting
out dri, dri2, glx) didn't help. There is nothing suspicious in logs.
