2012 Macbook Air (Sandybridge)

Brightness is set to 0 when loading i915kms from console with kldload.
Blindly (or via ssh) typing intel_backlight 80 restores brightness.

Setting hw.acpi.video.lcd0.fullpower = some value in loader.conf does not help.

I can confirm this behavior when booted using BIOS mode.  VT works fine after KMS is loaded using EFI mode.  I can confirm this with nvidia-modeset, and radeomkms as well.  All work fine when using EFI.
