i915kms works with drm2, i915 works with drm. See:


As you can see, upstream did this to preserve compatibility with the
UMS stack. However they have different needs than us, as Debian gives
us much less UMS support.

Perhaps we should rename i915kms/drm2 to i915/drm to make it the default?

Anyway, did you succeed at making this work?
