No, that can't be it. "new" Linux Kernel doesn't support either (yet - ever) as framebuff dev (support that has frozen). VESA doesn't need AGP or what. The kernel can render text on all newer and older video cards and chips. So it was never a kernel issue.
The drivers are compiled into X11R6 "xfree86" and known to be working with all older cards still. The drivers are not "broken".
There are NO native drivers for linux or any linux OS or freebsd OS. They are all hacked releases of (partly stolen or partly released) proprietary code badly feature cut. also the "binary only" (may have viruses) nvidia drivers only work with ubuntu and subject to forced upgrade failures.
Linux has (partial) proprietary EGA, VGA, SVGA, VESA support - which are cross platform and built into the video cards and chips. So that is native per say.
The logs say: the PCI misses and VESA is not detected. with one or both new chips enabled doesn't matter. it's because it's not really implemented.
the pci and vesa don't follow the old standards, so when asked in "the old way" to be present they are simply not listening because it's work they NEVER DID
