 The Dell GX260 (i82845) works properly when attached to the powered-off
 Gateway FDP1730 VGA LCD display.  It detects the 1280x1024 display and
 completes booting.
 With no monitor attached at all, it hangs at attachment of i915drmkms
 in the same fashion as initially reported in this PR (same as connected
 to powered-off ViewSonic EA771 VGA CRT monitor).
