You need both for DRI to work - a kernel module and a userspace X11
driver.  On my system the kernel module is "via":

via                    41568  1 
drm                    62356  2 via
via_agp                 9088  1 
agpgart                29744  2 drm,via_agp

And the X driver is "via_drv.so":


If the X server is properly configured, the kernel modules will
automatically be loaded when X starts.  Check Xorg logs.
