It's actually something completely different.  The system boots all right,
but there is no framebuffer console at all (X is working fine).  The
problem seems to be the recent pci cleanups.  The offb driver wants to
reserve 98004000-98183fff, but there is no matching pci resource.

90000000-9fffffff : /pci at 0,f0000000
  90000000-9001ffff : 0000:f0:10.0
  91000000-91ffffff : 0000:f0:10.0
  98000000-9fffffff : 0000:f0:10.0
    98004000-98183fff : offb

90000000-9fffffff : /pci at 0,f0000000
  90000000-97ffffff : 0000:f0:10.0
  98000000-9801ffff : 0000:f0:10.0
