Well, before trying a completely different set of drivers (with their own
issues) I would try to get the official ones running again. An older version
works on the hw-validation kernel. Therefore it is just something small
which has been changed between SDK3 and SDK4 and Kernel 2.6.32 and 3.7.

Some DRM driver is already provided by the official system (see Kbuild):


But without getting meaningful debug logs it is difficult to say what is
going wrong...
