Subjectscreen goes blank when loading gma500_gfx (atom D2500)

Today I rebooted my router into a new kernel and noticed that
the screen goes blank after booting the system (initial bootup
messages are visible). After some debugging it turns out that
the screen goes blank when loading gma500_gfx module.

This is an intel D2500CC motherboard with Atom D5200 built-in,
with a monitor connected to a VGA port, the following vga device
is reported by lspci:

00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation Atom Processor D2xxx/N2xxx Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 09)

Here are the dmesg output after loading gma500_gfx:

[ 176.427071] Linux agpgart interface v0.103

[ 176.806078] [drm] Initialized gma500 1.0.0 2011-06-06 for 0000:00:02.0 on minor 0

which does not look bad or suspicious to me.

fbcon is loaded so it isn't an issue.

I tried 3.10 kernel initially (the above messages are from it), next
I tried 3.13 kernel too, and that one behaves exactly the same.

As far as I remember, this system never worked with graphics well.
Previous kernel (from which I updated) was 3.2 which had no
gma500 module (local build).

What are the steps to debug this further?
