Ah, it was enabled, but not by default.  Now it is, and it works

But I lost my console, so booting is "blind" until x starts up.  And as
someone who breaks his kernel a lot, I need to see the console at boot

Heck, I can't even switch to a console anymore, I do that, and the
screen goes inverted with my x display, but comes back when I switch
back.  Is that a known bug?
