This reverts commit 887532ca7ca59fcf0547a79211756791128030a3.

We have a better solution for this: b516ea586d717

And same as with the last commit: "NVidia Linux driver" that's Nouveau, any
out of tree driver does _not_ matter. And with Nouveau all of this works even
though it required a proper fix first, but we have that now.
