This appears to be the same issue as PR kern/49398.  See:

for the full saga.  Alas, no solution has been forthcoming.

Since the machine does complete booting when the monitor is attached,
does X work with the "intel" driver?  If not, perhaps you are also
experiencing PR kern/49707?  (The Synopsis is a bit out of date as
X no-longer panics the machine.  The X server now terminates with
Bus Error.)  See:

for that saga.  Alas, no solution there either.
