kern/52378: radeondrmkms doesn't recover the console after X server death

System: NetBSD macaran 7.99.65 NetBSD 7.99.65 (MACARAN) #41: Thu Mar 9 19:33:59 EST 2017 dholland@macaran:/usr/src/sys/arch/amd64/compile/MACARAN amd64
Today I got
UVM: pid 8645.1 (Xorg), uid 0 killed: out of swap
and this left the console dead: monitor in powersave and keyboard also
At this point we ought to be able to recover after such an event.
Also, I would think that using ctrl-alt-Fn to switch to another
virtual console with an X server in it would bring the display back,
but apparently not.
kill -9 Xorg
Workaround: log in remotely as any user, run "X -- :5 &" (for some
unused display number :5), then kill it.
