  as a quick followup, i applied the following simple patch:

$ git diff
diff --git a/drivers/gpu/drm/i915/intel_opregion.c b/drivers/gpu/drm/i915/intel_opregion.c
index 64fd644..28adc6d 100644
--- a/drivers/gpu/drm/i915/intel_opregion.c
+++ b/drivers/gpu/drm/i915/intel_opregion.c
@@ -495,6 +495,8 @@ int intel_opregion_setup(struct drm_device *dev)
                opregion->acpi = base + OPREGION_ACPI_OFFSET;

+return 0; // rday
        if (mboxes & MBOX_SWSCI) {
                DRM_DEBUG_DRIVER("SWSCI supported\n");
                opregion->swsci = base + OPREGION_SWSCI_OFFSET;

to the latest tree, and it gave me a booting kernel, no black screen
issue.  i will not pretend to understand why that fixes the problem
but it does.
