The X server doesn't know any 640x870 modes.

Unfortunately, you can't use fbset -x to get a mode definition when you
boot with video=ofonly (unless the fbdev driver at depth 8 is all you
want maybe). The following mode definitions, which I've generated with
the gtf tool that comes with recent XFree86 versions, may help (beware,
my mailer breaks the second line):
# 640x870 @ 60.00 Hz (GTF) hsync: 54.06 kHz; pclk: 45.84 MHz
Modeline "640x870_60.00" 45.84 640 680 744 848 870 871 874 901
# 640x870 @ 70.00 Hz (GTF) hsync: 63.42 kHz; pclk: 54.79 MHz
Modeline "640x870_70.00" 54.79 640 680 752 864 870 871 874 906
# 640x870 @ 75.00 Hz (GTF) hsync: 68.10 kHz; pclk: 58.84 MHz
Modeline "640x870_75.00" 58.84 640 680 752 864 870 871 874 908
