I will do a fresh install of Debian Stretch using the current d-i images tomorrow on my
Mac Mini G4 to see what I can do. I have previously fixed some issues regarding "radeonfb".
The primary problem back then was that "radeonfb" left the GPU in a weird state from where
the "radeon" KMS module could not initialize it.

Problem was that that CONFIG_FB_RADEON was configured with =y instead of =m meaning that
I had to disable "radeonfb" on the kernel command line using "video:radeonfb=off". This
is also mentioned on the Ubuntu Wiki [1].
