smolt and dmesg
When booting kernel-PAE-3.0.1-3.fc16.i686 with EFI and KMS and no quiet and no rhgb I get the two cpu Tux'es and boot messages on the console.
fb: conflicting fb hw usage radeondrmfb vs EFI VGA - removing generic driver
(and perhaps one extra line) nothing happens.
The system keeps running - but without any video.
It might be because of
[drm:radeon_get_bios] *ERROR* Unable to locate a BIOS ROM
(See also Bug 735859 - rv515_fini / rv370_pcie_wreg - the code is fine but needs lockdep annotation)
(Nomodeset shows "something" but with heavy sync/sizing/memorylayout issues. I assume that there is no interest in a report of that.)

This message is a reminder that Fedora 16 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 16. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '16'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 16's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 16 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora, you are encouraged to click on
"Clone This Bug" and open it against that version of Fedora.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
The process we are following is described here:
Fedora 16 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2013-02-12. Fedora 16 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
This bug is present on Fedora 20. Please re-open.
