I would expect this to work with new drm code that is coming real soon
(once we resolve a few issues with ARM DRM drivers).

If you try it now you will need to find firmware yourself, and slightly
patch the code.

git clone -b re4drm56
Delete these two lines:

And install your own firmware from linux-firmware:

git clone
mv /libdata/firmware/nouveau/nvidia /libdata/firmware/nouveau/nvidia.old
cp -pR linux-firmware/nvidia /libdata/firmware/nouveau/

(Note this runs a -current kernel, but you can update just the kernel
and run the same userland)
