Hi everyone,

Here is the second batch of patches to add GK20A support to Nouveau. This time
we are adding the actual chip support, and this series brings the driver to a
point where a slightly-tweaked Mesa successfully runs shaders and renders
triangles on GBM! Many thanks to Thierry Reding and the people on the
#nouveau IRC channel for their help without which we would not have reached
this milestone.

A few lines of hacks (not included here) are still needed to deal with cached
mappings triggering external aborts and CPU/GPU memory coherency issues, but I
hope to understand and address these issues next.

Most of the changes below have already been seen (and sometimes reviewed) in an
earlier patchset. What has been added is proper PGRAPH support (still needing
an external firmware and mostly reusing NVE4's code) as well as a better RAM

How to represent and manage VRAM has been the hardest part to deal with, since
GK20A shares the system memory with the CPU without any kind of partition. I
have tried various approaches (included some in which no RAM object ever gets
instanciated) and finally decided to go for one using DMA-contiguous memory
allocations and relying on BAR mappings for kernel access and exposure to
user-space, as it fits better with existing code and keeps us safe from most of
the CPU/GPU memory coherency issues (at the cost of some performance).

Looking forward to your review of these few patches! :)
