Thank you for taking the time to file a bug report on this issue. However, given the number of bugs that the Kernel Team receives during any development cycle it is impossible for us to review them all. Therefore, we occasionally resort to using automated bots to request further testing. This is

As far as I remember we changed CONFIG_DRM_VMWGFX_FBCON to 'y ' now. Generally it is getting more complicated nowadays. Grub2 initializes some framebuffer graphics mode (unless console mode is enforced in /etc/default/grub), hands this fb over to plymouth and that hands things over to X. And

Ok so with those there seems to be some resolution lines which get repeated three times with the Ubuntu kernel (which is odd) and compared to the self-compiled kernel there seems to be no action to replace the framebuffer. Could you try to boot the Ubuntu kernel with vmwgfx.enable_fbdev=1 added

Blacklisting simple-framebuffer for the Ubuntu kernel will have no effect because it is built-in. But I am interested in the two dmesg's without any blacklisting to compare the output. Somehow those labelled as own kernel seem to be from a boot with the normal Ubuntu kernel, too. Just the wrong

The apport data from comment #11 shows a virtual machine on VMWare. Looking at the first dmesg log, there seems to be some kind of resource conflict between the simple-framebuffer driver and vmwgfx. For testing you could probably try to create a file like /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist- testing.conf
