I had good response on Freenode IRC at #intel-gfx when asking about my 
details. Here's how I got the relevant info (device is "Haswell-ULT 
Integrated Graphics Controller" in a new Core i3):

# pciconf -l pci0:0:2:0 | grep vgapci0
vgapci0@pci0:0:2:0:     class=0x030000 card=0x20548086 chip=0x0a168086 
rev=0x09 hdr=0x00

bwidawks on #intel-gfx gave me

 From chip=... I extracted 0a16
$ curl | grep -i 0a16
CHIPSET(0x0A16, hsw_gt2, "Intel(R) Haswell Mobile")

Riastradh and bwidawks said that meant the required driver support is 
for GT2, which is not listed at intel(4x) right now, implying there is 
not yet support for it. I'm therefore using the vesa driver.
