NVIDIA offers initial open source support for K1 graphics

Up until now the Nouveau project was basically an effort to reverse-engineer NVIDIA”s proprietary graphics drivers for Linux so that developers could have free and open source software to modify and improve. While the new contributions to the project from NVIDIA aren’t enough to ensure full support for the K1 chip (or any other NVIDIA processors), it’s the first time NVIDIA has contributed directly to the open source Nouveau project.
