You have to load the drm before X has started.  Try the following:
1. Add "radeon.modeset=0 single" to the end of your kernel command line in
grub.  That should boot into single user mode without X running.
2. At the console (do not start X) enter the following commands:
modprobe -r radeon
modprobe fbcon
modprobe radeon modeset=1
