I had the same problem (and the same fix); For me it gave up after 60
seconds of waiting for the firmware and panic'd.

Unfortunately at that point it was still at a VGA display without
much res, so while I got the backtrace I didn't get the top of the oops.
(and it was too early for netconsole)

It would be better if the firmware was missing for it just not to do 
modeswitching and carry on; I wonder if it was hangcheck or the like
that killed it?
