I've followed the directions on this page to install the experimental
i915 kernel:


I'm not sure that I booted into it correctly (pretty green with BSD in
general, and only some experience with kernel builds on Linux). I have a
Dell Latitude E7240 with a Haswell chip. Running PC-BSD 10.2 if that
matters. I'm uncertain about if the boot did what I think it did because
the uname output still say's it's a -RELEASE build:

# uname -a
FreeBSD sebastian 10.2-RELEASE-p4 FreeBSD 10.2-RELEASE-p4 #0: Tue Aug 18
15:15:36 UTC 2015    
root at amd64-builder.pcbsd.org:/usr/obj/usr/src/sys/GENERIC  amd64

The driver doesn't seem to load, using PC-BSD's Display wizard it
reports a failure then restarts the wizard when I try to start X using
the intel driver.

I've attached the dmesg output as requested on the above page. Let me
know if anything else would be useful.
