This is something funny I had to deal with initially.  There is *no* 
drm0 or drm1 being probed.  Consequently, there is only one entry in 
/dev/dri/, card2.  As a result, Xorg doesn't even recognize card2 as a 
source for DRM (probably due to what you said).  In the past, I have 
symlinked /dev/dri/card2 to /dev/dri/card0 and Xorg would work 
correctly, utilizing DRM.

I have an onboard Intel VGA device, but as far as I know it is 
disabled.  I can double check, but as I've noted things have worked fine 
with the above tweak until upgrading to 7.2-RELEASE.
