Source code for Intel driver and Mesa is widely available. Support
for chip you are asking for was added in June 2008:
It was noted in 2.4.0 driver release announcement:
which is linked form intellinuxgraphics.org frontpage:
“2008-7-23:xf86-video-intel 2.4.0 released, with new Intel 4 series chipset support,
improved 965 exa render performance, integrated HDMI support, and SDVO HDMI support.”
