This has changed! The above is still true with EFI, but with BIOS booting,
nouveau attaches successfully, and I can run xdm+twm! The experience
is exactly the opposite to the one with Sandy Bridge: images display fine,
glmark2 runs. It's the fonts which are unreadable (not a question of size
but of artifacts. This is in 3840x???? mode. Still, at least I no longer
have to disable nouveau in order to boot!
