I continued to try different kernel config options and got it working,
though I'm not sure what made the difference.  In retrospect the console
framebuffer was not really working before, but it obviously works now.

I can't get mesa-7.8 to compile because the gentoo build
is ignoring the gallium useflag.

ATM glxgears is giving me ~275 FPS, same as the 'nv' driver. Is this
because of the missing, maybe?
