I'm not sure what chipset the HD4000 is and whether it requires the
DRI2 stuff. What you describe sounds like it does.

I suggest grabbing the latest FreeBSD 11-current amd64 snapshot - the
"VT" one, which has the new console driver in it - and try that with
X. It should restore things back the right way.
