Well, I've learned that built-in framebuffers initialize _before_ the
network stack is up, so that didn't help. Rebuilding savagefb as a
module gave me:

hub 3-0:1.0: 2 ports detected
savagefb: mapped io at f8980000
savagefb: probed videoram: 16384k
savagefb: Detected current MCLK value of 71591 kHz
savagefb: 1024x768 TFT LCD panel detected and active
savagefb: Limiting video mode to 1024x768
savagefb: mapped framebuffer at f8a80000, pbase == e8000000
BUG: unable to handle kernel NULL pointer dereference at virtual address
printing eip:
