That just got committed, so you can skip the patching steps in my
instructions, which leaves:

  git clone --depth 1 git://anongit.freedesktop.org/nouveau/linux-2.6
  cd linux-2.6
  cp /boot/config-`uname -r` .config # use .config of currently running kernel
  yes "" | make oldconfig # use defaults for new options
  make clean && make && make modules && sudo make modules_install && sudo make install
  mkinitramfs -o initrd.img `make kernelversion`+
  sudo mv initrd.img /boot/initrd.img-`make kernelversion`+
  sudo update-grub
