adds support for the x800VE (r420 based) ati chip

Well, I've never been very happy on my free-OS since I have this card (multiple
freezes with the proprietary fglrx driver, a non-working free driver...) but
since Ati has dropped support for <r500 chips in the new drivers I'm back with
the free one, decided to make all my possible to get a decent support...
Today, after a quick look at why it doesn't work here, I understood that my
chip wasn't referenced beside the others-r420-based cards.
Then I provide a more-then-little-patch to add the missing entries in the
source files.
I'll probably open a new bug soon because although I now have a display I
encountered a lot of glitches and a pair of freezes...

Have a nice day !
