This is more of a question than an answer.  (1) Have you changed
kernels?  (2) Have you tried making your BusID conform to what xorg's
log reports finding?  It sees them both, but doesn't like how you are
identifying them.

Two simple experiments: (1) Comment out the BusID lines and see what
xorg says; use SBUS:fb0 for both busid lines, since xorg is seeing two
devices at fb0.

I realize this is not much of a response, but it might give you a couple
ideas until someone who knows more than I do answers, too.
