By-the-book (the FreeBSD Handbook) is, I believe:

* more for goodness that is consistent and explicable

* less for trial-and-error that leads to goodness without explanation.

Today <https://forums.FreeBSD.org/threads/80534/post-513631>; it seems 
that a problem was avoided by _not_ installing xf86-video-intel, which 
<https://www.freshports.org/x11-drivers/xf86-video-intel/>; describes as 
legacy.

Matt, would you describe your hardware as legacy? Is your system still 
freeze-free _with_ xf86-video-intel?
