Xorg.log of a failed boot

My iMac11,1 was running Ubuntu since the beginning and till 14.04 fine but gave
a black screen, with sometimes horizontal lines flowing since 15.04.

After applying the Apple patches Mac EFI Security Update 2015-002
(https://support.apple.com/kb/DL1848?locale=en_US) and 27-inch iMac SMC
Firmware Update 1.0 (https://support.apple.com/kb/DL1030?locale=en_US), my iMac
was unable to boot in graphical mode without the nomodeset kernel parameter.

Grub console is sluggish (but not for Ubuntu 11.10 and 12.04), sleep doesn't
work and overall graphic performances are bad.

I had to install OSX El Capitan for flashing the iMac and I didn't have issues
in OSX.

I join an Xorg.log of a failed boot (without nomodeset).
