And built-in works beautifully with kms & fbdev on top of it etc...
(real fast console switches ! yay !) if I do

CONFIG_EXTRA_FIRMWARE_DIR="/lib/firmware"
CONFIG_EXTRA_FIRMWARE="/nouveau/xxx.ctxprog nouveau/yyy.ctxvals"

Where xxx and yyy need to be replaced by whatever is relevant to your
hardware.

(In my case nv43. BTW. For the lurkers, it works fine with the
6600 in the PowerMac G5 with an endian fix to the new loader that
I just posted to the nouveau list and which should trickle upstream
soon).

Cheers,
Ben.
