Right. Chip-specific video drivers for the latest hardware aren't totally
independent of kernel support. AFAICT, drivers for the latest hardware will
never get support for older kernels when the bits the drivers depend on just
didn't exist in those older kernels.

I suspect if it's possible to enable support for uncommon, or any, widescreen
modes under FBDEV or VESA, that this is the wrong forum to be asking for help.

A suggestion to use a newer kernel does not imply getting one directly from
kernel.org. If you look on http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/Kernel
you'll find a lot of newer kernels from Novell you could try. Asking on the
opensuse-factory list would likely get you a good recommendation on a
starting point for dealing with your particular problem, and maybe a full
solution or workaround.
