With no params to modprobe, so with modeset off.

I tried again with r942 and I tried both now. With modeset=1 the screen
got black during boot til Xorg started up (as expected). I haven't
tried the viafb yet.

Nice! I really look forward. I noticed it is still slow so I disabled
the compositor in xfce. 

Xorg.0.log show info about DRI and glxinfo shows that dri is enabled.

glxgears shows ~69 FPS (Software Rasterizer)

playing movies with mplayer works also pretty well.

This looks good!

Attached is the Xorg.0.log
