Noticed that running xorg the first time loads drm and i915.  I also see
that i915.ko and drm.ko are modules.  On unloading them, I see this:

drm0: detached
Warning: memory type drm leaked memory on destroy (4 allocations, 128 bytes leaked).

Reloading them and running xorg again doesn't fix the V_BIOS out of
range problem; xorg still doesn't start more than once.

Since my last posting I have recompiled the kernel and all the xorg
ports just to make sure I didn't mess something up the first time.  No

I'd appreciate thoughts from someone who's into stuff like V_BIOS and
drm and i915 and xorg.
