I've copied the output after switching to the framebuffer:

--------------------------------------------------
onsole: switching to colour frame buffer device 160x48
pty: 256 Unix98 ptys configured.
block request queues:
4/128 requests per read queue
4/128 requests per write queue
Enter congestion at 15
Exit congestion at 17
PCI: Cannot allocate resource region 0 of device 00:14.0
PCI: Cannot allocate resource region 2 of device 00:14.0
--------------------------------------------------

00:14.0 is the Radeon.
