I assume you mean non-Nvidia chipset. Yes, it works, because the driver
uses the firmware interface. This is what Apple's Windows (bootcamp) drivers
do as well.

Tested using a simple program that writes the ports from userland.
And ack: it should probably be renamed to something more reasonable.
Something like apple_bl?

Mario
