The old i915 drm code expects to work with the xf86-video-intel-old
driver that is in xsrc.

I only got part way through getting the old driver to build against
the xorg-server that is in xsrc, the xf86-video-intel driver and
i915drmkms kernel code seemed to be working fine for everyone at the
time so I stopped working on the old driver.

I would guess problems seen now are because i915drmkms is taken from
Linux 5.6rc3 and doesn't support newer hardware.
