Is this going to happen or has Nvidia given up?

Many devs say Nvidia could even interface directly without fear of legal repercussions.

I hope these get reviewed and land soon. 3.9 window is almost closed.

Nvidia’s PRIME helpers are pretty much guaranteed for Linux 3.9

All of the necessary code has landed in the needed for-next trees

Linux is ready, are you ready, Nvidia?

Finally! Good times ahead. Good times. :)
