Now I remember.  My mistake was building fbcon as a module.  When I changed
it to built-in then everything started working correctly.

Before I figured it all out, I loaded the fbcon module from a blank console
screen before starting X -- thus getting the missing device error mentioned by
the OP.

If there's a way to shoot yourself in the foot -- I promise to find it :)
