(In reply to Patrik Jakobsson from comment #21)
Hi, I've been trying to reproduce this on the gma500 machines I have
available but they all hang at various points (not necessarily gfx related).
Also, they're all 32bit machines which make things difficult.

Great. Very much appreciated.

What seems to be happening is that gma500 fails at some point and when
restoring back to fb console it also fails, hence no textmode fallback.

Can you boot with drm.debug=0x3f and then look at dmesg. That would give us
more information. I'll continue trying to get something up and running on
these machines to see if I can pinpoint the first failure.

dmesg attached. Be aware that there is no video/display. I can only
check what dmesg states, when it is saved and read in another running system.

Btw, do you only have a single VGA monitor attached to the machine and no
LVDS-panel at all?

There is only a VGA monitor. I've no idea how to attach an LVDS panel at all.

I'll attach dmest in the next updated.
