I'll give it a try.

Finally, folks! I've recompiled and installed a new kernel with
 Graphics support  --->
    <*> Intel GMA5/600 KMS Framebuffer
    [*]   Intel GMA3600/3650 support (Experimental)

and even got nice penguins during kernel boot :-) Screen resolution is also
increased from vga. I don't see any garbage on the screen while deleting
symbols with BS/DEL.

Next time I would know to check hw thoroughly instead of trusting
Intel with gpus :-)
Thanks everyone for pointing me in the right direction
