Our wiki says that if vga is appended the KMS will break, which is not really true, what happens is that vesafb is loaded but is overrided as soon as KMS kicks in. Still the right thing do to is to setup KMS to start as early as you want it, there are a few methods on the wiki. Then setup your resolution correctly as mentioned, if it's not autodetected properly.
I suppose in your case you would need to have: video=LVDS1:1440x900
(I'm assuming "LVDS1" as xrandr returned that, in your case.)
