Bug Description

If you've got xf86-video-vesa or xf86-video-fbdev installed, these will be loaded by the X server by automatching as fallbacks. These drivers can't work under Wayland, and so are disabled. However, that's not done correctly - later in the Xserver startup process, xf86BusInit will try to iterate over the driver array up to xf86NumDrivers, and will dereference NULL because we've killed vesa and fbdev.
