First, thanks for the off-list reply I got.

I noticed I hadn't actually checked native Xorg, which turned out
to work fine with DRI enabled. So this seems to be a regression
with xf86-video-intel. A web search suggests that this has also
bitten others, in particular Ubuntu users, causing Ubuntu to disable
DRI for i8xx chipsets by default.

Maybe it's time to create a "xf86-video-intel-legacy" package? I
guess this will someday be necessary anyway, when the Intel driver
gets updated to a version that requires kernel-based modesetting...
