SubjectRe: Blank console but X11 works on MCP79 - old regression since 3.8
With a new kernel, mind grabbing a dmesg with drm.debug=0x1e
nouveau.debug=debug (or maybe even =trace)? Maybe also see if
fbcon/fbdev have any debug things that can be turned on?

Sounds like things are generally working, just the fbcon -> nouveaufb
path seems somehow buggered.

Another thing to try would be nouveau.atomic=1
