I can confirm the regression: a completely-blank screen right after the
grub prompt.

Printing kernel output using early_printk() all along ('earlyprintk=
serial,keep') shows that the rest of the kernel internally goes on with
its booting process as usual.

Reverting the mentioned 541cc966 commit solves the problem; the bug is
reproducible in both qemu and real hardware.
