It looks like you've done everything according to what is known to
work.  You even have the right framebuffer loading from yaboot.  The
only thing I can think of is that you can try the agpart and r128 as
modules instead of compiled into the kernel.

If that doesn't work it looks like it's time for you to file a bug
report and see what the developers need to start fixing things.
