Well, my display stays even black with the 855gm and I filed a bug for
this. Seems my card isn't initialized correctly at all so I might look
into patching it when it works.


I was unable to get it to work properly but the bug seems to have to do
something with powering on and off the LVDS, because when I comment out
the powering off in the driver code, it works.
