Glad to be of help. You probably downgraded the entire X server
(xserver-xorg-core and xserver-xorg-input-*) along with it. That's
fine, just be aware that if you do not hold or pin them, the next
upgrade will happily install the 6.14 version again.

Just a note: disabling modesetting is definitely not the way forward,
as the non-modesetting case is (being) deprecated.

According to other threads, there have been a number of problems (and
fixes) in udev lately. Can you upgrade to the version in unstable (170)
to see if it fixes things for you?

That was unexpected... I'm officially out of suggestions here :|
