I'll definitely be testing this on my Haswell laptop, running HardenedBSD. I 
should have a report back by the end of the week.

I'm assuming, though, that Haswell won't be working, right? I'll still have to 
use the VESA driver. As far as Haswell is concerned, you're mainly looking to 
make sure that the patch doesn't actively break anything?
