On my system, I have this in my /boot/loader.conf:

kern.vty="vt"
kern.vt.fb.default_mode="1280x1024"

The console switches to higher resolution as soon as I *manually*

# kldload radeonkms

which pulls in this, among others:

13    1 0xffffffff82039000 1165b3   radeonkms.ko
18    1 0xffffffff821a9000 1070     radeonkmsfw_RS780_pfp.ko
19    1 0xffffffff821ab000 5b6e     radeonkmsfw_RS780_me.ko
20    1 0xffffffff821b1000 1369     radeonkmsfw_R600_rlc.ko

after this, I can freely switch from X to console, and the console
stays in high res mode too.

Hope it helps...
