[Nouveau] [TEST REQUEST] nv40 "firmware" replacement

So, I've spent the last few days messing around with replacing our use
of NVIDIA's context programs on GeForce 6/7 hardware and have something
that works on the 4 (2xNV44, NV46, NV4B) cards I have.

The context programs are *much* less complex than NVIDIA's and don't
handle nearly everything NVIDIA's do, however they do work for our
needs, and it's as good a starting point as any.

I've attached the currently generated "firmware" in the same binary
format we packages NVIDIA's in.  If people with the relevant hardware
could install them, and report success/failure and the chipset they
tested on (the whole "Detected an NVxx generation card" line from
nouveau's dmesg output would be perfect), that'd be great!

I'm now working on moving the code that generated the firmware in the
below tarball to the DRM, and after some testing before I do!
