I'm not sure about the bionic hdmi port, as I haven't played with one of those yet, but this will allow you to load a linux distro with very nearly 100% functionality, the only real limits to the linux functionality are from not being able to compiler new drivers into the kernel that's stored by android, and the potential lack of some packages/functions in the ARM versions of some linux distributions.
One thing to be aware of, however, since you mentioned CM11, is that there is a glitch caused in the current version of the Complete Linux Installer app by CM11 ROMs which causes you to need to either manually input one command line to start the bootloader script, or set up a widget on your device to do that for you (sorry, it's a CyanogenMod quirk. We're working on it, but so far it's hard to track down since only CM seems to cause it).
