You shouldn't need the migration heuristic option now that the driver has EXA
composite support.

The bios options may be useful eventually, but the problem is the chip on the
card that bridges AGP to PCIE has to be set up properly to translate between
the two interfaces.

You'll new to rebuilt that in order to compile the latest kernel modules.

You don't have to worry about them.

In this case, no.

Only in that you need the headers from your current kernel in order to build
the latest drm from git.  Depending on the age of your kernel and what your
distro has included/changed, you may have to make some minor changes to get
things to build properly.
