[git pull] drm nouveau destaging + Kelper modesetting support

Hi Linus,

This pull request is unexpected and not something I had mentioned 

so NVIDIA announced new Kepler GPUs this morning, and Ben has killed
himself getting modesetting support for them together to have on launch 
day. Most of the code to support the new chips has already gone in, 
however this pull contains a few more pieces along with the final enables
so the driver binds to the new Kepler cards. Its quite amazing that 
nouveau can support a GPU on its launch day even if its just unaccelerated
modesetting, and I'd like to have support in the next kernel.

In order to sweeten the deal, Ben has also requested nouveau destage and
become ABI stable, the only change is the version number bump which he
prepared userspace for quite a long time ago. The driver hasn't broken ABI 
since that one big break that caused a lot of fuss.

It's also quite a small set of code, and not likely to break anything.


The following changes since commit 5466c7b1683a23dbbcfb7ee4a71c4f23886001c7:

  drm/i915: use DDC_ADDR instead of hard-coding it (2012-03-21 10:20:38 +0000)
