Maybe.  intel-gfx at lists.freedesktop.org might be more appropriate since
this is a kernel driver bug.

What this is saying is the driver had some expectations about the state
the hardware would be in when efifb handed the device off, and those
expectations were violated. If there's no functional problem you can
safely ignore it, but it's a kernel driver bug either way.
