Trying and failing to load i810 is not a problem. It happens here as
well but things work fine.
The problem could be that it tries fbdev and this one doesn't fail
properly, and but it doesn't work either. On my laptop, I get
(EE) open /dev/fb0: No such file or directory
and then the intel driver is loaded. So it looks like fbdev properly
fails to load here, causing intel to be tried and it works.
Do you have a framebuffer kernel driver running? Any /dev/fb* exists?
What's in /proc/fb? Can you try without framebuffer kernel drivers?
