may i suggest not to use legacy1, legacy2, legacy3 names,
as it becames eventually confusing which one is older legacy, legacy1 or 
especially if the oldest one is removed, due not being compatible with 
any xserver,
and you have left with legacy3 which has no relation what card it's for...

but rather something mentioning the major version:

and for nvidia ones:
xorg-driver-video-nvidia-legacy.spec -> 
xorg-driver-video-nvidia-legacy2.spec -> 
xorg-driver-video-nvidia-legacy3.spec ->
