No, the X11 modesetting should also work. The old driver which used the BIOS
for modesetting isn't used anymore, all current modesetting
implementations, both the X11 one and the kernel one, do the work on their
own. I don't know why it isn't offering you the correct resolution. You can
hardcode it in xorg.conf.
