Re: NetBSD 9.1 amd64, base X11: garbled display

Linux is using the "modesetting" driver rather than the "intel" driver.
This is an option on NetBSD as well, although ISTR that OpenGL doesn't
yet work with the "modesetting" driver currently in NetBSD's Xorg sources.
(Or was it something else that was not ready for prime time?)

As such, it doesn't directly identify the video device but does provide:

> [   898.950] (--) PCI:*(0@0:2:0) 8086:0f31:1043:15bd rev 14, Mem @ 0xd0000000/4194304, 0xc0000000/268435456, I/O @ 0x0000f080/8, BIOS @ 0x????????/131072

Under Linux 'lspci' for the device at bus 0, device 2, function 0 should
show more information--possibly even a chipset name/number.  More "-v"s
for more verbosity if needed.
