 I reproduced the no X with serial console problem on a Dell OptiPlex GX620
 without extra radeon card, i.e., with a
   i915drmkms0 at pci0 dev 2 function 0: Intel 82945G/P Integrated Graphics Device (rev. 0x02)
 From ttyE0, without serial console, without X running:
 # ./writefb /dev/ttyE0 0xff350053
 writefb: width    1024
 writefb: height   768
 writefb: depth    32
 writefb: cmsize   256
 writefb: mod    0
 and the background went purple (!)
 This is the same as the output of xdpyinfo on this particular setup.
 (With serial console, I can't get to ttyE0 - all is black (Out of Range
 on this monitor), if I ssh in, I get the same result)
