Yes, it is userspace. Pity I don't have the logs any more (Xorg.log.0), where 
the error was shown. It showed me, that the *_dri.so could not found (so GLX 
could not be started). They originally reside below /usr/lib/dri/, but the 
driver search them below /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/dri/, which was not existent.

So, there is either a problem with the kernel-module, or some other thing 
accidently deleted (or did not create!) i386-linux-gnu/dri below /usr/lib.

Hope, this makes it clearer. :)
