[PATCH] xfree86: Add "modesetting" to list of fallback drivers

To make X -configure work properly, the output of fixup_video_driver_list()
should be in order of preference. Otherwise, the config file may use
the incorrect driver for some devices.

In particular, the drivers that work for all (or many) devices need to be
last in the list. Since the modesetting driver works for many devices,
it needs to be considered a fallback driver.
