i think the problem is that you are using vga, radeonfb has no idea  
what is connected, a guess without being there to see.  try appending  
the video size like video=radeonfb:1920x1200-24@60.  you should be  
able to get the current mode from using open firmware frame buffer / 
sys/class/graphics/
