Unfortunately, I don't really know where it actually fails because I
do not have *any* Intel GPUs to test.  If vesa.c is really causing
trouble, vesa_bios_post() in vesa_load_state() may be the culprit,

AFAIK, KMS does not play nice with syscons(4) ATM, e.g., syscons does
automatic VT switching and it may need to be turned off.  Again, it is
just my guess.

If you don't have vgapm0, its BIOS is not setting PCIB_BCR_VGA_ENABLE
bit to its bridge.  Often times, that means it is "legacy free" stuff.

No.  With multiple GPUs, it is (was?) the only way to find the "boot
display" because unit number is not always 0.  Although dumbbell added
vga_pci_is_boot_display() in current, this interface should be kept
for 9.x.
