Assigning to Alberto for now, who covers for Bryce. Timo, Mario, please feel free to assign to you if you can/want to handle it.

Thanks Mario for putting together the patch. This approach seems appropriate to me in the sense that it errs on the side of caution. As for the regression potential, having a functional VESA on some cards which could work with nv does not seem to be a major problem to me, since realistically you have to install the proprietary driver (or nouveau) to do anything sensible anyway. So +1 from me.

Could you please put this into a PPA and ask for some more widespread testing on ubuntu-devel@? Feedback should be put into this bug preferably (to -devel@ will also do).
