I heard that this handover from OFfb to radeon KMS can cause problems in
some cases. Maybe you can try adding video=offb:off to

Otherwise this is the only other sign of any potential problem that I
can see, though I think it shouldn't cause a black screen.
Maybe you can also check what /sys/class/backlight/radeon_bl/brightness
contains when the screen is black and whether writing 128 or other
values between 0 and 255 to it makes a difference.
