The default i810 video driver can only set modes to those listed in the video BIOS, and you bought a machine with a sufficiently broken BIOS to not list the native panel size.

 Thanks, that rattled my memory.

 Running the '915resolution' prog from
http://www.geocities.com/stomljen/download.html in a rc. startup
to hack a proper video bios mode line lets X choose the correct
resolution.

Given that we are never, ever, going to ship 915resolution in Core, I would appreciate it if you'd test the 'intel' driver as well, since the next major release of the i810 driver is expected to be based on that branch.
