Description

This happens on a recent Tuxedo laptop. See attached screenshot.

I have come up with a working (but hacky) patch:

After patching, if I set loader tunable sc.probe_early=1 then it correctly boots.

Try booting with machdep.hack_efifb_probe_early=1.

I've tried this patch on my Lenovo Yoga 920 that previously was unable to get past the loader initial screen.

It now boots perfectly and I'm able to fire up Xorg without issues.

With commit b1122e3cbd55be825debb5766a4242317c71d40d the machdep.hack_efifb_probe_early tunable is removed. It should just boot fine.
