Tried  this patch on nouveau (as included in drm-radeon-testing tree, based on
2.6.35. Yes, odd.) . But something goes wrong. modinfo show no additional
parameters, and booting with drm_kms_helper.poll=0 just prevent drm/nouveau
from loading.

Reason for testing on nouveau: polling TV-out seems to be expensive operation
here, at least for old single-core AMD K7.
