Okay, can you do one more experiment for me. Since you already reverted 
the patch to get it booting I like to ask you to add 

drm_fb_helper_fill_fix(info, fb_helper->fb);

back into the drm_fb_helper_set_par function in drm_fb_helper.c. You have 
something like this:

        for (i = 0; i < fb_helper->crtc_count; i++) {
                crtc = fb_helper->crtc_info[i].mode_set.crtc;
                ret = crtc->funcs->set_config(&fb_helper->crtc_info[i].mode_set);
                if (ret) {
                        return ret;
                drm_fb_helper_fill_fix(info, fb_helper->fb);
Tell me if your system is still usable after that. Thanks for testing for
