set fallback drivers to avoid updating pci-id lists

Bug Description

The AMD/Intel pci-id's keep changing when new platforms are enabled. Currently, the new ones need to be added to the kernel, libdrm, mesa and xorg-server. This duplication is silly, as there's a limited number of drivers for a platform, so use a default (fallback) DRI driver for a vendor. For Intel it's i965, for AMD it's radeonsi.

[Test case]
check that the correct driver is still used on an Xorg session and DRI works

[Regression potential]
shouldn't be any
