Sorry to get back to this, but I was testing other stuff in the meantime and
had no time to reply.

It seams that the issue is not just the black screen, the laptop won't trun
off at all or reboot!

If the other problem wasn't already a big issue this is indeed a major one!

The only way to turn off is but "force" and this can cause damage to
filesystems, this is indeed a very big issue, and I'm not sure if its
specific to KMS or some freebsd-current problem cause I have no way to look
into it!
