Description

The DRM driver was ported from S11 (or S12) where they now have a "bitmap console", so they leave the display in graphics mode when Xorg (or whatever) does its last close on the DRM driver. In our case, the DRM driver probably should return the display to VGA text mode after last close (and perhaps on VT-switch too).
