I have connected a TV to my laptop's VGA connector which works mostly
fine. The issues are:

- LVDS-1 shows only 48 lines,  while VGA-1 show 67; i.e. one can not see
  on the LCD what the user types;

- when on boot the VGA is not connected, I can not get it to work
  without a re-boot; there is a key to switch (Fn+F8) which does
  not work;

in loader.conf I have set:


The system is a recent 12-CURRENT amd64.

Any idea?
