Typically the out of memory error means the kernel didn't attach an AGP
device. Intel driver needs AGP in order to steal host memory for the
framebuffer. Check that the PCI product id of the AGP bridge is among
the ones listed in src/sys/dev/pci/agp/agp_intel.c and if not add it.
(It is possible that this is fixed in -current but not in netbsd-5.)
