Hah, I bought a new G965 system, but could not source one with DVI anywhere, so I bought an ADD2 card with DVI.
It doesn't even want to think about working. No bios, no boot, no X. The modesetting branch does recognize the existence of the ADD2 card and produces no display at all. The documentation for configuring the driver is full of undescribed terms (grovelling in the source explains some (LFP/DFP) but not all). I don't know what a pipe is, really and how it might be used or not used in my system.
As someone who can download code from version control and read source to an extent, this configuration for (6 month old?) hardware still doesn't work in Linux. I feel the announcement was premature.
