To a first approximation, I wouldn't expect any of the DRI1 drivers to
work (i810, sis, mga, rage128, savage, tdfx, unichrome), if for no other
reason than that the max texture size on those tends to top out at
1024x1024, which sort of puts an upper limit on your screen size.  But I
haven't tested whether "doesn't work" means fallback mode or means
crashing in nasty ways.

The only closed-source driver with a non-negligible market share - that
isn't nvidia or fglrx - that you might try this with is Poulsbo.  I
don't remember how their libGL setup works offhand, but if it's like
DRI2 then it might work and you of course get to keep both pieces when
it doesn't.
