    The framebuffer is a method the kernel has for handling the video as
    graphics instead of textmode. It was introduced a few years back. It can
    also be used as X display, but it is slow. The idea was to have the machine
    always in graphics mode. I forgot the advantages they said it has, but the
    wikipedia will say, I suppose.

    If you look, the text console number 1, the VT1, is in fact graphic, it has
    a faint background image. It is in framebuffer mode.

    Maybe there can be several of such and the programmer tells which one by
    the ID. That's speculation on my part :-)

    Yep, that did it. I added the kernel command line i2c_algo_bit.bit_test = 0 and the new kernel booted just fine. All is well now. Thanks!
