i think the simplest way to fix this for now would be to black list
the newer nvidia cards that don't work -- the nvidia driver has a
generic "made by nvidia, is VGA class" match routine, so it matches
pretty much all nvidia pci-style GPus. this _normally_ works ok as
previously the newer cards worked "ok" if not well accelerated, but
the newer ones fail at it...
then vga would attach, and vesa graphics work, and on the high end
nvidia cards, vesa is surprisingly fast and usable.
