Can you just add the serial/dmesg output with drm.info=255 to the bug?

You could boot in text mode (so recovery) with 'nouveau.modeset=0'.
Set up your network, SSH in the box, and then 'exec /sbin/init 5'
to start X. Then from your SSH session run 'dmesg' to get that
Oh, you should also have 'debug loglevel=8' on your Linux command
