NetBSD gx260a 7.99.1 NetBSD 7.99.1 (GENERIC) #82: Sun Nov 16 18:04:48 CST 2014  sysop%verthandi.technoskunk.fur@localhost:/d0/build/current/obj/i386/sys/arch/i386/compile/GENERIC i386

Booting -current GENERIC (and probably netbsd-7 DRMKMS) kernel with
a monitor attached but powered off (no monitor attached?) hangs.

The machine in question is using a VGA CRT monitor for display.

Via a serial console:

pchb0 at pci0 dev 0 function 0: Intel 82845G/GL DRAM Controller / Host-Hub I/F Bridge (rev. 0x01)
agp0 at pchb0: i830-family chipset

drm: Memory usable by graphics device = 128M
drm: Supports vblank timestamp caching Rev 2 (21.10.2013).

i915drmkms0: interrupting at ioapic0 pin 16 (i915)  
drm: initialized overlay support                  

With video console, turning monitor on shows VGA text-mode
kernel messages which continue with:

drm kern error: Raw EDID:

Boot -current GENERIC (possibly netbsd-7 DRMKMS) i386 (amd64?) kernel
on machine with i915drmkms-supported hardware and monitor powered off (no

Have not tried on a radeon-equipped machine yet.
Workaround:  Always have monitor connected and powered on.
