I'm not sure what you're saying is broken. I appear to be running
a Neomagic-specific server on 2.0.34 and the NM2160 chipset with
no problems:

        with XFree86 and the server's authors.  This server is freely
        available, and source code for this server will be included in the
        next XFree86 release.  Please report any problems to one of the
