Bug Description

At least with the Trusty 3.13 kernel the driver name seems to have changed. So I had to add the following line to

--- /lib/udev/rules.d/78-graphics-card.rules ---
 DRIVERS=="nouveau", GOTO="graphics_end"
 DRIVERS=="efifb", GOTO="graphics_end"
+DRIVERS=="efi-framebuffer", GOTO="graphics_end"


Without thiat, a virtual machine (again) gets stuck while ejecting the conflicting framebuffer.
