There is a 3D driver for S3 savage shipsets in the old
utah-glx project ( http://utah-glx.sourceforge.net ).
It could be ported to DRI with a little work. It a
good place to start anyway... Several people were
working on it ( both savage 3D/MX/IX and savage4). see
the ML archives for more info:
There was alo support for S3 virge and some other SiS
chipsets as well that could also be ported to DRI.
Hope this helps,

It might also pay to get in touch with Tim Roberts,
the author of the 2D
driver for the S3 Savage driver:
