If you still have your old kernel w/o the module built-in, and if there
is framebuffer console module for your chip that is comparable to atyfb
for the mach64 rage/pro, you could also see if (re)gen'ing your initrd
makes any difference. I haven't looked at that stuff in years, but
I vaguely remember that it was as simple as running update-initramfs in
the initramfs-tools package. But don't take my word for it, unless you
are familiar with the proedure, you do need to research it a bit.
