FWIW, on a recent Dell laptop:
[ 1.000003] cpu0 at mainbus0 apid 0
[ 1.000003] cpu0: Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-7200U CPU @ 2.50GHz, id 0x806e9
[ 1.014344] i915drmkms0 at pci0 dev 2 function 0: vendor 8086 product 5916 (rev. 0x02)
With current I can now use stellarium and opencpn with hardware accelleration,
which is a real improvement over netbsd-8 (stellarium now gives me 60fps,
when without hardware accelleration it's a less than 1 - almost unusable).
