Johan & others,

Thanks.  Here /usr/share/doc/xserver-xorg/NEWS.Debian:
  "xserver-xorg (1:7.4+1) unstable; urgency=low
    * Changes in handling of input devices
     ... devices configured in xorg.conf ..."
I neglected to read the 1:7.4+2 changelog.

Would there be any harm in leaving a small 
xorg.conf containing the explanation in the 
changelog as a comment?  There could also 
be a section or two commented to help in 
cases where the automatic configuration fails.
Such template xorg.conf could always be removed 
when the automatic configuration becomes 
somewhat reliable.

In any case, this system now has /etc/X11/xorg.conf 
containing these four lines.
  Section "Device"
     Identifier "Builtin Default i810 Screen 0"
     Driver "intel"
X now starts without complaining about the driver 
for the i810.

Thanks,         ... Peter E.
