I'm not sure that it's the i810 package specifically.

I have it installed on my system, as well, but have an nVidia card with no
special drivers, other than the ones installed by Fedora.

I did, however, get exactly the same problem with the black screen and no
real feedback, other than the moving mouse, after recent updates.

Unfortunately, one can not uninstall the i810 driver, on its own, unless
one uses "--nodeps" or, possibly, "--force", which might wind up breaking
the xorg-x11-drivers package.
