Nouveau 2D progress

Time taken to do the gtkperf benchmark:

Nouveau driver from two days ago: 54.94 seconds
Nouveau driver from today: 24.86 seconds
NV driver (for comparison): 40.78 seconds

So you can see the nouveau driver is now substantially quicker than it used to be, and now even quicker than the old nv driver.

Keep rocking guys!
