Getting back to the topic at hand (no HDMI output after latest apt-get kernel upgrade), the following work-around got me going under the new kernel, *though it does not fix the root cause.*

The issue seems to be in the HDMI subsystem failing to properly identify the connected display. Adding the following to /boot/config.txt stops the kernel from polling the display for edid data, to identify the type of display.

# Added when kernel upgrade resulted in no HDMI

Information about that parameter can be found here...

I have managed to fix mine using this parameter and adjusting the hdmi_mode value. I really don't know that well how it worked, but I'm happy for now.
