I have a 855GM and intelfb (compiled into the kernel, not as module)
works perfectly on my laptop, except for suspend and suspend2 (suspend
to disk implementations).
I have tested this with both kernel 2.6.11 and 2.6.12 with debian patches.

Another message in the thread you found tells us a bit more on the
modular and built-in versions of framebuffer drivers. It also brings
in initrd wich is a good alternative of built-in drivers.
