When you see commits like "nv50/ir", this is in reference to the
codegen compiler, which is used for all nv50+ GPUs. You could say
"nouveau's codegen" or just plain "nouveau". nv30/nv40 gpu's don't use
those, but having perfect precision in these notes is next to
impossible. If an issue is strictly for e.g. nvc0+, despite being in
the compiler, I'll mark it as nvc0/ir or even gk110/ir or whatever.

Having better release notes is a double-edged sword... they're more
informative, but you're also on the hook for getting all the details
right, and it's hard to be an expert on every driver.
