Old repository for intel driver?

I'm trying to debug issues on the 855 graphics chip, and wonder if there
is a historical repository for the intel driver.

For example, I'm wanting to git blame the lines:

   if (pI830->PciInfo->chipType != PCI_CHIP_845_G &&
       pI830->PciInfo->chipType != PCI_CHIP_I830_M) {
      I830SetParam(pScrn, I830_SETPARAM_USE_MI_BATCHBUFFER_START, 1 );

in i830_dri.c and see when they were added / why (why just those two
chips can't run this command?)

A git blame shows that prior to a syntax revision KP made, the lines
come from:

commit 3ad0d9a73bc0a4f3edb858d5f3a7c36827b7a429
Author: Kaleb Keithley <kaleb at freedesktop.org>
Date:   Fri Nov 14 16:48:55 2003 +0000

    Initial revision

Is there a historical repository somewhere?

Does anyone know why the above lines are only avoided ono 845_G and
I830_M chips?

Best wishes,
