Hm, my bad then.
I have to say that I tested to boot a system with i915.modesetting=0
and afaicr there was no
/sys/module/i915 directory then, so have_smart_intel wouldn't trigger
anyway, what gives?

Maybe my memory doesn't serve me well but I thought have_smart_intel
was written in the early days of the KMS support for intel when there
was no inteface like /proc/fb yet, which could be used to check for

Why is it that all of the instruments seeking intelligent life in the
universe are pointed away from Earth?
