For ATI, we have:

cat >> /etc/X11/xorg.conf << "EOF"
Section "Module"
         Load "dri2"
         Load "glamoregl"

Section "Device"
         Identifier "radeon"
         Driver "radeon"
         Option "AccelMethod" "glamor"

I think, as a minimum, that the module section is no longer needed.  The 
Device section narrows the driver to just radeon as you described, but I 
don't know if the option is needed or not any more.
