I have a newer Dell gx280 at work that I have -current running on and I was
curious about trying out the i915 DRM module.  However the kernel doesn't
pickup my device, although it looks like the DRM module will:

       244         {0x8086, 0x2582, 0, "Intel i915G"}, \

I think this an embedded pci-e device, so I'm not sure adding the id to the
agp_intel.c would do any good.  Does the kernel have to pick up the
controller (like through agp_intel.c) in order for the DRM module to work?

none0 at pci0:2:0: class=0x030000 card=0x01791028 chip=0x25828086 rev=0x04
    vendor   = 'Intel Corporation'
    device   = '82915G/GV/GL, 82910GL Integrated Graphics Device'
    class    = display
    subclass = VGA
none1 at pci0:2:1: class=0x038000 card=0x01791028 chip=0x27828086 rev=0x04
    vendor   = 'Intel Corporation'
    device   = '82915G/GV/GL, 82910GL Graphics Controller (??)'
    class    = display
