Description of problem:
I just tried running some OpenGL programs under Skipjack and the framerate was
about 5 seconds per fram on a Voodoo3.  I checked the /var/log/XFree86.0.log
file, and noticed this line:

  (WW) TDFX(0): [dri] To use DRI, with a 16Mb Voodoo 3 or Banshee 
                card, you must invoke the server using a maximum 
                resolution of 1024x768 or lower.

I currently have over 50 PCs with Voodoo3 cards running RedHat 7.1 and 7.2, and
all of them are running at 1280x1024 at 16bpp, and DRI works beautifully.

Why does the tdfx driver for XFree86 4.2.0 have this new requirement when it
worked fine before?

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Configure XFree86 to run at 1280x1024x16bpp
2. Fire up X
3. Note the warning in /var/log/XFree86.0.log
4. Try to run any OpenGL program and note the horrible performance

Actual Results:  the tdfx driver refused to use DRI

Expected Results:  the tdfx driver should enable DRI
