Stupid vgahw tries to mmap the legacy VGA framebuffer which isn't
going to happen on a mac. It's also completely useless - they want to
access it in order to preserve things like the VGA text mode font,
something we never use.

Hmm, did I forget to support that in genfb_pci? I'll go have a look.
Xorg works like a charm -- kernel-option "FONT_SONY12x24" is ignored
and Apples console-font remains unchanged
This is weird. Sounds like wsdisplay didn't attach properly for some
reason. Otherwise the OF font wouldn't even be available.
Do virtual consoles work?
and console keyboard is unuseable after Xorg once run ... otherwise
it's fun to use.
Use /dev/wskbd in xorg.conf - for some reason xorg seems to confuse
the mux device. Wskbd0 should re-attach to wskbd after being closed
but for some reason it doesn't always happen :/
DPMS works and I just plug in my headphones and listen to music :-)
