appears to have something to do with panel drivers as kernel modules. So the fb is coming up too late (where the Tux already has been drawn) Code to draw the Tux appears to be: fb_show_logo() http://lxr.free-electrons.com/source/drivers/video/fbdev/core/fbmem.c #L663 We have to find the calling sequence and how it relates to DSS initialisation.

Simple idea: put dump_stack() into fb_show_logo() and check how it is called from omap dss initialization (if at all). Add some EPROBE_DEFER return at a good location...
