That was just a first cut. I now do without the DefaultDepth line and
add Modes lines to all the Display subsections. The driver selects
depth 24, just as it did in Xorg 7.2. Interestingly, diffing the
servers logs from successful and unsuccessful logs shows next to no
difference. The only relevant change I can see is that the failed
attempt selected a more high-res mode. Perhaps the problem is just
that it chose a mode my card can't support (which in turn might be
because Xorg 7.4 fails to identify the card).

Unfortunately no, the fonts are still broken.

Sounds plausible, so how do I fix the dpi settings?
