Well, you can sort-of get a dumb framebuffer-like effect if you
turn off any acceleration. For the "modesetting" Xorg driver (for newdrm):

Section "Device"
    Identifier "Card0"
    Driver "modesetting"
    Option "AccelMethod" "none"

Section "Screen"
    Identifier "Screen0"
    Option "Accel" "off"	# prob. unnecessary for "modesetting"

The RANDR extension should still work, I think.
Of course this assumes that your DRMKMS is mostly functional...
