As might have been expected, reverting the change that enables the
DRM/display options in exynos_defconfig fixes the problem.

    ARM: exynos_defconfig: Enable options for display panel support

    Many Exynos devices have a display panel. Most of them just have
    a simple panel while others have more complex configurations that
    requires an embedded DisplayPort (eDP) to LVDS bridges.

    This patch enables the following features to be built in the kernel
    image to support both setups:

    - Direct Rendering Manager (DRM)
    - DRM bridge registration and lookup framework
    - Parade ps8622/ps8625 eDP/LVDS bridge
    - NXP ptn3460 eDP/LVDS bridge
    - Exynos Fully Interactive Mobile Display controller (FIMD)
    - Panel registration and lookup framework
    - Simple panels
    - Backlight & LCD device support
