Here's a log showing a boot into X, then switching to console, then
trying to kldload vesa.ko. Looks like X is happily probing vbe modes,
but the console chokes with "SeaVGABIOS: x86emu leal trap!".

I'm trying to get a VESA console going on FreeBSD 8.2. There seems to
be some mixup detecting available video modes (using SeaBIOS 1.7.5).
FreeBSD's vesa.ko module refuses to load, bailing out from
whole VESA block seems to be garbage, or it is parsed incorrectly.
Any ideas on what might be wrong?
There have been problems in the past with older versions of x86emu not
properly emulating some x86 instructions. However, to be sure if this
is the problem, we'd need to see the output from the debug log. See:
to enable debugging, and please post the full debug log.
