try booting with i915.powersave=0

It works, but the effect dies with hibernation. On restore, the display
dies after... dunno, more than one hour.

Huh, that's a bug, the "powersave" status has to be restored on resume...

I guess that the entire handling of that particular video chip is buggy. Either the chip, the driver, or both. And maybe even the display itself.
