Prompt [Q] Get kernel framebuffer console

Hello XDA users!

I'm so confused with this thing. I've been trying to do that nearly a month. After a billion google queries and phone reboots (if my N4 could throw up, it would) I got nothing.
First of all, I can't compile the kernel.
Sys info: I'm on Arch Linux 3.12.1-3-ARCH 64 bit.
I have all the three google toolchains (arm-linux-androideabi-4.{6,7,8}) and currently I'm trying with 4.8.
With default config (I stress that) I get this: http://showterm.io/1a41b9af919653f53a890
I use google's repo (https://android.googlesource.com/kernel/msm.git) on the android-msm-mako-3.4-kitkat-mr0 branch (I use occam-krt16o build on my N4).

I know this must be noobish problem, but I have no idea what's the problem...

Thanks in advance!

I've got some news!
First of all, you need to edit scripts/gcc-wrapper.py to use python2.7 and not 3.
However, 4.8 toolchain spits some errors and I'm not really into casting spells just to compile with 4.8 instead of 4.7. If there is a major difference between them (performance improvements etc.) I'll look into it.

Now it's time to implement the framebuffer changes to the .config

UPDATE: Well, I applied this patch (https://github.com/Tasssadar/kernel/...65a760c431R608), I can only get blank screen. Any ideas?
