Default i915 kms, init runlevel 2 switches virtual console

Hi. I'm using debian testing with vanilla kernel 2.6.32-rc8. I've staticaly
compiled i915 with kms enabled and it acctually works. The only thing that
annoyes me is that after init runs runlevel 2, it automatically switches to vt
4 (I have only 4 vt running from init) a continues boot messages there. I'm
not sure what does that, I'm suspecting console-setup of doing that.

Is this happening to anyone else? Before I dig into console documentation to
learn how it works to fix it. I guess that is going to be time consuming.

Also, kernel switches the required video mode a bit later then vesafb did. Is
there a way to set this on the kernel command line? I've read that it is
recommended to get rid of the vga=<mode>. I've tried setting this via video=
parameter, but I guess inteldrmfb doesn't support modedb. The vga= probably
uses vesa mode that isn't part of the fbcon. However, I know almost nothing
about how that actually works. It would be just a nice thing to have the
correct mode set right from the start.

thanks for any pointers
