It seems that KMS support is being integrated into kFreeBSD in upstream:

I think the phoronix article is incorrect, in that KMS support is not in
FreeBSD mainline yet. The patches that are available should work equally
well on mainline and the stable/9 branch at this point, though.
This will most likely need to wait until the patches are merged upstream. I'm
filing this bug so the information is not forgotten.
Which is not to say that this is inaccurate; I do agree with both of these
