# lsmod | grep [suspect]

would be my first port of call, but I'm not sure how reliable that would 
be. The only boxes I've got running X are running NVidia proprietary 
drivers, for which I get:

jup-linux2:/home/avi# lsmod | grep nvidia
nvidia               8116592  20
i2c_core               27776  2 nvidia,i2c_i801
