Bug#648856: xserver-xorg-video-intel: Xorg refuses to start after a dist-upgrade

dist-upgraded from what? If that's just from wheezy/unstable from a
while ago, what got upgraded? (dpkg.log to the rescue)

KMS has been mandatory for intel for a while now, disabling it can't
work, especially since you're forcing the driver through xorg.conf
(which you probably could move aside, since there's nothing interesting
there except maybe the ZAxisMapping option).

And FWIW, fbdev might be a nice alternative for old cards when intel
doesn't work.
