[Intel-gfx] 2.6.32-rc3 regression (I think): i915 framebuffer doesn't work

Somewhere between 2.6.32-rc2 and 2.6.32-rc3 (I think -- it might have
been a bit earlier), the framebuffer stopped working.  I see this
because Plymouth (F11) boots in test mode not graphical mode.  The
exact same userspace on 2.6.31 works fine.

(This seems to be getting worse.  Eric Anholt's for-linus worked
yesterday with text mode plymouth but now just hangs using the same
image -- I don't have any good explanation for that one.)

This is a Lenovo X200s, which has a GM45.
