The driver was there in FC6 and F7, just not enabled by default except 
for known working chips.  With F8, most Intel hardware should be 
defaulted to the modesetting driver.  And as of rawhide today, the i810 
driver is gone, gone, gone :)

* Tue Nov 13 2007 Adam Jackson <ajax at redhat.com> 2.1.99-1
- xf86-video-intel 2.1.99.
- Drop the i810 driver.  Time to move on.
- Require xserver
