I verified that I get the same behavior with the i915_load="YES" in
both /etc/rc.local and /boot/loader.conf - the crash that I only see
when I set mode=0 (800x600 resolution).  It is likely that it is
crashing in the other default mode but I can't really confirm that
because the display is diagonally corrupted at the top of the screen.
