Well, you clearly don't want to keep "vga=keep". There has to
be something that's still going wrong, but this may now be a
kernel side issue. In the logs you provided I couldn't spot
anything odd, but these were from working cases after all. So
as said, for now I'm lost, and you may need to live with some
form of workaround (which you've said you're okay with).
