Default Re: 180.06 report (some improvements)

@zBeeble42: thank you for the detailed log files, I took a look. It looks like the extended GPU capabilities check is throwing out 1920x1200 for the internal panel:
(II) NVIDIA(0): --- Building ModePool for Seiko (DFP-0) ---
(II) NVIDIA(0): Validating Mode "1920x1200":
(II) NVIDIA(0): 1920 x 1200 @ 60 Hz
(II) NVIDIA(0): For use as DFP backend.
(II) NVIDIA(0): Mode Source: EDID
(II) NVIDIA(0): Pixel Clock : 166.44 MHz
(II) NVIDIA(0): HRes, HSyncStart : 1920, 1968
(II) NVIDIA(0): HSyncEnd, HTotal : 2000, 2228
(II) NVIDIA(0): VRes, VSyncStart : 1200, 1203
(II) NVIDIA(0): VSyncEnd, VTotal : 1209, 1245
(II) NVIDIA(0): H/V Polarity : -/-
(II) NVIDIA(0): Mode is valid.
(II) NVIDIA(0): Native backend timings for Seiko (DFP-0):
(II) NVIDIA(0): 1920 x 1200 @ 60 Hz
(II) NVIDIA(0): Pixel Clock : 166.440 MHz

(II) NVIDIA(GPU-0): collapsing Native Scaled.
(II) NVIDIA(GPU-0): BestFit and Native are identical; collapsing Native.
(WW) NVIDIA(GPU-0): BestFit Centered ViewPort 1920x1200 exceeds hardware
(WW) NVIDIA(GPU-0): capabilities.
(WW) NVIDIA(0): Mode is rejected: Unable to construct hardware-specific
(WW) NVIDIA(0): mode timings.
Ditto for the external Dell DFP. You should be able to work around this by specifying one of these two X driver option lines:
Option "ModeValidation" "DFP-0: NoExtendedGpuCapabilitiesCheck; DFP-1: NoExtendedGpuCapabilitiesCheck"
Option "ModeValidation" "NoExtendedGpuCapabilitiesCheck"
However, I'd really liked to root cause this problem. Which notebook (make/model) are you using? If I can get a hold of one, I might be able to reproduce and investigate the interrupt storm problem, as well.

As to PAE, the NVIDIA FreeBSD graphics driver has never supported it due to limitations of the mmap(2) interface; the workaround needed for the same limitations can break down on large memory configurations even with non-PAE kernels.
