The hwe stacks are created for purpose, so with 16.04.2 being almost out
I doubt this will be backported to non-hwe. Closing as fixed.

xf86-video-r128 6.10.0 breaks rage 128 pro ultra
Status in xserver-xorg-video-r128 package in Ubuntu:
I ran into this bug on Xenial LTS which left xorg unable to start.
It was fixed upstream in 6.10.1, so when I installed the the hwe
package, it worked just fine. Perhaps LTS needs to be updated to the
This bug is particularly frustrating because xorg fails without an
obvious problem. There wasn't much to search for, so it took me days
before I happened across the bug report at netbsd.org. I'd say that
makes for an even more compelling case to update the LTS package.
What happens is that xorg immediately exits. Xorg.0.log shows a normal
startup, finds a bunch of modes, and then exits with the message,
"(EE) Screen(s) found, but none have a usable configuration." without
any indication of modes being rejected.
I tried all sorts of workarounds vaguely related to mode detection,
but none of them would work.
Here's the mailing list discussion surrounding the bug. The Xorg.0.log
excerpts in the discussion were exactly what I saw here, so I'll just
refer to that: http://gnats.netbsd.org/50599
Let me know if I need to use ubuntu-bug xserver-xorg-video-r128
