This is bare hardware with intel GPU. The comment at the
end just points for one possible solution, as virtualbox
used to encounter the same issue.
The issue is linked to increased debugging options enabled on
Rawhide. Stable Fedora releases do not have such debugging
enabled in kernel, so there is no issue in released Fedora versions.
Hey, we have a respository for that!
This should get you builds of the rawhide kernel without all of those
debugging options turned on.

I haven't try neither nomodeset nor other DMs, because no
maintainer asked for such test. The only interaction maintainers
had with this report was reassigning from kernel to xorg-x11-drv-intel.
(yes, this is me complaining)
As much as I hate to say it, there are very few of us (kernel
maintainers), and a lot of bugs. The fact that this is limited to
debug kernels has made it pretty low priority. It's not that we don't
want to see it fixed, just that there are unfortunately more bugs
which do impact releases. Asking upstream might be more fruitful
