Converting from CURRENT to STABLE

Hello All!

My laptop graphics works good under a Current kernel with DRM-4.9 (actually, it's T-OS). I tried 11.0 stable and 11.1 release but no luck (I prefer not to settle with scfb). I was wondering what if I buildworld or buildkernel with either 11.0-stable or 11.1 rel, will I still retain the DRM-4.9 after doing so? I also like the ZFS alongside Linux partitions without going to wipe the entire hdd.
As I can understand DRM 4.9 is a new graphic driver model which imports a DRM stack from Linux
There is no possible compatibility between binaries sourced from diferent major branches.

Current is FreeBSD 12, Release is 11.1

There is a compatibility between 11.0, 11.1, 11.x but not between 12.X and 11.x

Give a try to TrueOS, it's working under FreeBSD Current, with ZFS, if it is working for you, marvelous.....
So for any update, the TrueOS staff does the job for you.

I'm on TrueOS now, and would really want to avoid using it if possible because they're tracking a testing kernel.. And lumina-de for me, no offense, is really awful. If not because of my graphics working, I won't use it. I'll be happy with an openbox and an adjusted screen brightness.
