I'm using xserver-xorg-video-i810-modesetting on my notebook to get a
1280x800 resolution. With it 915resolution isn't needed anymore.

Perhaps it could replace xserver-xorg-video-i810 in main if it proves to
be stable enough? That way users with an 1280x800 resolution get it
working from the start.
