The machine (Asus UX301, Iris 5100 video card) runs Xorg only with "vesa" and all graphics are really slow.
When adding configuration to change the driver to "intel" then X doesn't start anymore -- the error message: "no screens found".

Same problem with a Zotac CI540 Nano (Intel HD Graphics 4200). The solution from https://forums.freebsd.org/threads/57839/#post-331528 worked, except that the new PCI ID was 0a1e, rather than 0a2e.
Same problem with Lenovo Ideapad 100 15lby (N3540, Intel Baytrail/Valleyview HD graphics). The PCI ID was 0x0f31.

Is this still an issue even?
drm-kmod has seen several iterations and updates in the nearly 4 years since this was reported.

For me this is not an issue anymore: with FreeBSD 12.1 graphics (Intel Iris 5100) work without problems.
