You need to "mount -tdebugfs debug /sys/kernel/debug".

2.6.25 to present marks the transition between UMS and KMS, i.e. moving
of the userspace modesetting code into the kernel. And that should not
have regressed. Can you please, grab an intel_reg_dumper of the working
setup and the lost-sync setup, and include a drm.debug=0xe dmesg (i.e. add
drm.debug=0xe to your boot commandline)?

Good, those drivers are recent enough that I should be able to use the
error state to find the broken code.
