Both Nouveau and ATI (PCIe) look to work. I did light testing (ATI ES1000,
Radeon 3450, Nvidia 65.. something) and will need to do some more
aggressive ones. Oh, and Intel GTT seems to work without any of these
patches - but I've only tested it on a machine with 4GB so I need to add
more memory to make sure.

PCIe = supported
PCI = not supported
AGP = not supported.
