Good to know that this is a compatible machine!
I only have an eeePC 4G.

Yes, these appear for all architectures but seem to be harmless.

Ok.

Ah, ok. Yes, that may be because the letux_defconfig is not optimized
for your machine and may be missing some parts.

No it looks really fine what you have done! Thanks for doing the
experiment.

Now we have to look how to improve.

One step comes to my mind. Can you reinstall your old kernel and boot
and then send me the /proc/config.gz? I hope that it exists because
some kernels don't provide it. This would allow to make the letux_defconfig
more compatible so that screen resolution becomes better again.

BR and thanks,
Nikolaus
