Seeing this here too.  amdgpu on polaris-11, on an old amd-fx6100

*NOT* seeing that.  However, I have boot messages turned on by default
and I see them as usual, only it stays in vga-console mode instead of
switching to framebuffer after early-boot. I'm guessing MP has a
high-res boot-splash which doesn't work in vga mode, thus the
black-screen until the login shows up.

That all matches here, including the unset CONFIG_DEBUG_FS and
confirming the revert on 5.14.0-rc4 works.
