8500 support will not be available until XFree86 4.3.0 if not
later.  There is nobody actively working on it in an official or
full time capacity.  Ani Joshi claims to have written 8500 3D
support for his employer, but has indicated he doesn't know if
they will allow him to release it or not.

All you can do is wait for 4.3.0 to arrive for now I'm afraid...

Sorry..
