FS#1593 - [Hyperbola GNU/Linux-libre 0.4] Reworking xenocara and dbus-dependencies

Within the concurrent version of xenocara for version 0.4 there is a problem in vesa, generating the error-message "V_BIOS address 0x0 out of range". It is a known old bug that was fixed when D-Bus arrived by default.

This issue is oriented onto to document the steps to test further solutions and rework the x-server.

 FS#1584  - This also references a related issue with it on QEMU there.

Tested on Thinkpad X60s:

Mesa DRI Intel(R) 945GM x86/MMX/SSE2

Working so far normal with using corresponding Intel-module. Further tests for sure needed also for newer Intel-platforms.
