Looks like I picked the wrong time to update a month old.

Problem #1: 'kldload -v i915kms.ko' locks up the system.  No
panic.  No messages logged.  No keyboard response.  Black
screen of death.

Problem #2: 'kldload -v drm2.ko' locks up the system. No panic.
No messages logged.  No keyboard response.  Black screen of death.

Problem #3: #1 and #2 along with an update of xorg to 1.18.4
prevents X from firing up.

Problem #4: Ok. I re-install everything that X uses and their
dependencies from source.
