Boot with "radeon.modeset=0 3"

as root:
rmmod radeon
modprobe radeon modeset=1

If it works it means debian initrd doesn't include the firmware. Your own
compiled kernel can't load the firmware because the radeon kernel module load
before your filesystem is accessible. ie you need to build the firmware inside
your kernel image.

There 99% chance that this issue is on your side. I tested cedar, lastest
kernel on a fedora and it doesn't have issue to load the firmware (firmware are
in the inirtd file)
