yup.  i read that the chipset you mentioned went into a late 4.1.0 cvs.
it's probably updated in 4.2.*.   i don't know any distros that come
with 4.2.*, but perhaps you can build X from cvs.  i think i remember a
few people (brian lavender?) saying it wasn't that bad at all.

i never did it myself.  :)
