So this seems to only happen when CONFIG_DRM_I2C_ADV7511_CEC is
enabled. If it is on, I don't get any graphics, but if its disabled
graphics works.

Tying this with Arnd's patch, I'm guessing adv7511_cec_init() is
failing, but it seems like instead of just disabling the CEC feature,
we're failing to load the driver entirely.

Maybe should the logic be something like:
ret = adv7511_cec_init(dev, adv7511, offset);
if (ret)
regmap_write(adv7511->regmap, ADV7511_REG_CEC_CTRL + offset,
