It sounds like a systemd version. So I guess at that point the kernel
already finished booting and it somehow "seems to freeze" after in the
userspace booting procedure.

Good point, since it seems to stop after systemd startup so my guess is
that it just doesn't show anything on the screen after loading the GPU

So why not preventing that module from loading at first? That way it
will keep using the <VESA|EFI|Whatever> display mecanism that the
<BIOS|EFI|UEFI> provides.

You could then use the working screen to setup ssh and try to make
better kernel+Xorg drivers work.
