This says userland is asking about things (GEM) that the kernel doesn't
know about.

Your xorg log probably says that you ran out of aperture space while
trying to initialize the server. This message says "I ran out of
aperture space".

If userland's defaults (as long as you don't have any options in
xorg.conf) fail, then they need to be fixed.

Can't really say anything here without Xorg.0.log. Maybe a backtrace of
the server, too?

intelfb could interact badly with the DRM, I'd recommend removing it.

Userland needs to get fixed so that the defaults work for pre-9xx. But
we don't support XAA.
