If we consider Phoronix feedback and comments [1], the i81x ones are still
by far more popular than all the other cards combined :) :).

But on this topic, my guess is that even if we rip off XAA we'll still have
XVideo and mode setting working. But still, I think it would make sense to
have XAA optional for some time before dropping it completely.
