On an 855GM, I lost console with KMS kernel after the first set of
DRM fixes by airlied. That is shortly before .29-rc1, IIRC.
I can post the exact commit later, if it helps.

(I did not ping anybody yet, as 855GM is not supported or even tested
yet. FWIW, I did even get X running, kind of, with KMS enabled before
said drm fix.)

Best, Andre
