radeon driver woes

I have a Radeon HD6450 card (Caicos)

I'd like it to load and give me some higher res console like in FreeBSD, 
but I can't figure it out.

I've dug around in the manpages, rc.conf defaults, loader.help, etc., 
but nothing's very clear about how to enable it at boot. Sure, I can 
kldload it, but I want it at boot.

in FreeBSD - it's kld_list="radeonkms.ko", but I don't see kld_list in 
/etc/defaults/rc.conf. I tried it anyway, no effect.

I added amdgpu_load="YES" to /boot/loader.conf and it panics and I can't 
figure out how to recover as none of the boot menu options work 
(ramdisk, single user, safe mode, etc. all panic on amdgpu.ko).

Prolly an indication that amdgpu's the wrong choice :). I'm off trying 
to figure out how to rescue the system, but I figure once I do that I'll 
try radeon_load="YES" and continue the trial and error approach until I 
find out different.

How do I load my radeon driver at boot?
