            Bug ID: 212226
           Summary: vesa.ko - fails to detect it's already loaded
           Product: Base System
           Version: 11.0-RC1
          Hardware: Any
                OS: Any
            Status: New
          Keywords: crash, regression
          Severity: Affects Only Me
          Priority: ---
         Component: kern
          Assignee: freebsd-bugs at FreeBSD.org
          Reporter: venture37 at geeklan.co.uk

Attempting to load the vesa.ko module from a terminal results in the following
error being reported.

module_register_init: MOD_LOAD (vesa, 0xffffffff82421000, 0) error 6
sysctl_unregister_oid: failed to unregister sysctl

If vesa_load=YES is defined in /boot/loader.conf, this results in a unbootable
system, error being reported as

panic: module_register_init: module named vesa not found.

System is running the stock RC-2 generic kernel & I had not checked that the
config file already includes the vesa module.

Attempting to load the vesa module on 10.3-RELEASE results in
module_register: cannot register vesa from kernel; already loaded from vesa.ko
Module vesa failed to register: 17

System boots without isuse if vesa_load=YES is defined in loader.conf
