Just FYI (I think it's S3 Virge specific, but maybe not), I solved my RX
packets loss on my ADSL interface after I read the message

and used

Section "Device"
Identifier "Generic Video Card"
Driver "s3virge"
Option "fpm_vram"
Option "fifo_aggressive"
Option "pci_burst" "on"
Option "pci_retry" "on"
Option "XaaNoCPUToScreenColorExpandFill"

in my XFConfig-4.

(The whole thread seems to be worth a read.)
