Default Bug#567747: workaround for no-video on i915: vga=ext

Hi,
I added vga=ext to my boot parameters, and with that my system boots
fine (although not in the usual vga=ext 50 lines vga mode, but it DOES
activate my i915 framebuffer?!? it's definitely running the native
1440x900 resolution of my screen.)
Maybe this prevents efifb from running (or resets the video after
GRUB?), and thus allows i915 to get the video device properly?

Regards,
Erich
