Yep.. that's how it is feeling here too. I already spent a while on the
Glamo SD having two very different versions due to large upstream changes.

Well, no complaints: it's not exactly a critical optimization right now
and having working text framebuffer is fine. It should be disabled with
quiet or some other way for end user boot anyway.
