    w00t! Now if Linux can get some proper NVLink support instead of patching via VFIO.

      I wonder if this could somehow help in getting NVIDIA graphics cards to work in home-built OpenPOWER systems based on Talos or Blackbird motherboards from Raptor Computing Systems. I know, I know, the whole point of such systems is to have a complete open auditable firmware-blob-free system, but it would still be cool to have a wide choice of high performance GPUs when building a system based on such a different architecture. 🙂
