If it aborts there the garbled display is meaningless.

You are either missing some of the xfonts-* packages or don't have the
FontPath for misc in Section "Files".

I don't use this for my Pismo because I understand frequently switching on and
off a TFT shortens its lifetime. Your choice in the end.

The rest of what you included of your XF86Config looks perfectly sane to me.

As I mentioned just yesterday in another post: ctrl+alt/option+F[1-6] or
ctrl+command/apple+F[1-6], depending if you are using Linux or ADB keycodes.
Note that you have to hold the Fn key for F[1-6] to work on a Pismo.
