On Debian, -i810 is simply an alias for -intel.  If you could get the
"real" i810 driver, my guess is that it would work as before.

I doubt it's just a configuration problem.  (Your system probably ought
to run properly with no xorg.conf at all in fact.)  Since you have some
errors listed indicating problems with DRI, I'd suggest starting there -
try disabling it in xorg.conf or figuring out why is missing.
