To be brutally honest, this was done before 
(http://libv.livejournal.com/19432.html), as part of my, soon, 10y 
old struggle to get rid of the ludicrous dependency on video bioses (it 
seems ludicrous now, but i once was on my own with this view). But this 
was on (now) much less interesting hw, namely VIA chipsets. And if only 
AMD hadn't lost control over ATI, we would've easily had it with 
discrete ATI cards too 6 years ago (as we had reduced the BIOS 
dependency to only a few hundred lines of board specific bootstrap 

But good to see this work being done now on recent IGPs.
