xserver-xorg-video-intel is installed by default and uses KMS. VESA is
the fallback for unsupported kernels to allow upgrades. This is known to
work. There is no such kernel in testing/unstable.

Works fine here. AFAIK needs acpid (installed by default) and most of
them are only used by the desktop environments.

Properly setup by the installer if it finds a usable swap partition.
Known to work.
