Alberto, please revert these blacklists. Blacklisting the cards in grub causes a significant regression to the user experience when NOT booting in recovery mode - systems that had a perfectly working flicker-free boot from grub to plymouth even when using the binary nvidia drivers now have a text mode boot everywhere (bug #863719). We should *NOT* regress the standard boot experience in the last weeks before release to improve the recovery mode experience.

I believe a better solution here is to adjust /etc/grub.d/10_linux to always pass =text instead of =keep for recovery mode. Half the time when you're booting to recovery mode you'll get this anyway because the previous boot didn't succeed, so having grub always do this will be more consistent - and handle possible problems with the video handoff across *all* video hardware.
