    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?
