Admittedly, I don't know the first thing about KMS. The very little
reading I have done right now make me wonder, though, whether this is
really relevant since no X server is running on my system in general.
Still, here is what I can tell you:

root@denkblock:~# grep KMS /boot/config-
root@denkblock:~# cat /sys/module/i915/parameters/modeset

Do I have to recompile with CONFIG_DRM_I915_KMSCONFIG_DRM_I915_KMS
disabled? If you think it is relevant and if you have one or two links
start from, I can do some reading up on KMS.
