hey everyone - so i've been helping test the work that the FreeBSD folks
have been doing to get support for modern Intel GPU's based on the i915
chipset (which is a majority of the laptops shipped these days).  The
initial work was to improve the linux KBI interface in FreeBSD which
allowed the developers to easily import the linux i915 code into FreeBSD.
The decision was also made to create a port of this work - much in the same
way that the Nvidia Xorg drivers are handled.

I've been dog-fooding this code for quite a while now and while there are
some rough edges it looks like this work has been accepted by the ports


I think this is a major milestone, and hopefully will make it easier for
FreeBSD devs and users to finally ditch macbooks and start using FreeBSD as
their daily driver!

I understand the Linux kpi let's you integrate with Linux drm. How about
vesa. Looks like the Linux code is better.
