Here's part of dmesg:

I'm also not sure why, and even in .built-in.o.cmd, drivers/char is
before drivers/video. Perhaps the early console_init()? I'll try to
rebuild my kernel without the framebuffer console and let you know.

Yes, FB_I810 depends on AGP_INTEL, so the i810fb option is disabled if
agpgart is disabled.
