Hi, what is the Intel graphics adapter you are using on this system?  Do 
you happen to have the dmesg output from your system when it 
successfully loads the kernel module under CURRENT?  It also would be 
helpful if you could share your dmeseg buffer from 12.1-STABLE when it 
loads the drm-kmod module.
