afaik, you can still specify which driver to use in you xorg.conf. I had a similar issue just 
the other day. I used the below mentioned conf and it worked perfectly.

Section "Device"
        Identifier      "Configured Video Device"
        Boardname       "via"
        Busid           "PCI:1:0:0"
        Driver          "openchrome"
        Screen  0


Hope this helps.
