Assuming you are having the same issue (the last line in the log before freeze is fb0: switching to inteldrmfb from EFI VGA) this might help:

Off-topic question here:

Has the i915 driver freezing issue been resolved? My a1398 still freezes upon boot. (linux-5.8.5)

5.8.x is now out. Note that Intel IOMMU is enabled by default (CONFIG_INTEL_IOMMU_DEFAULT_ON=y). This is a requirement for the kernel to boot with some (most?) older intel GPUs. Use kernel parameter if you need it disabled for any reason.

Can confirm the package build fails with gcc 10.1.0. There are reports that the video driver issue has been resolved in 5.7.7. I will investigate this some time next week, and if that's indeed the case will finally push 5.7.x. Stay tuned.

Is anyone running into build errors? I think it is related to my GCC version being beyond what this was originally built on, based on quick research.

There is a bug in 5.7.x (5.7.4) i915 driver that causes freeze on boot with some intel integrated gpus (a1398 is affected). Not updating this package until the upstream issue is resolved.

Maybe my connection is bad but when I try to download the doc, the update fails because the conntion is too slow. Is there another way to download all the files?

another bug report: 5.6 kernel introduced incompatibility with bcwc_pcie package, so no webcam available, at least until the driver maintainer issues a new version.

In the meanwhile it is possible to update the driver manually after changing code, following the instructions at

Found the problem! hid-apple-patched-git-dkms update to support Apple Magic keyboards does some funky auto detect of kb layout based on country code. Probably not your problem :)
