Bingo. Could this be done as a real F12 binary package (maybe call it "force-nouveau-0.0.16" or something) for testers to use? I had most of the X devel tools set up anyway since I used to build intel drivers from git for one of my experimental machines. And I guess most kernel devs can generally easily do the rpm build, but I'd hate to lose any more plain testers than I absolutely have to. And it would make it way easier for people to try out their kernel, notice that X doesn't work, and then let them know that something like a simple yum install force-nouveau-0.0.16 makes it work. Compared to having them install X builds, do a "rpm -Uvh --nodeps" etc etc. Anyway, this at least makes me feel like I don't have to revert that commit just to be able to test current -git again. Thanks, Linus
