Hmm, this appears to be related to the fact that I had "video=VGA-1:d" in my 
grub kernel command line. I used to have a TV connected to the VGA port and 
didn't like the way KMS set a small resolution on my main computer monitor. I 
don't need the VGA-1:d anymore, but this still shouldn't cause the black screen...
