NOUVEAU --
Karol Herbst has sent out the latest version of his patches to further stabilize the re-clocking of GeForce 600/700 "Kepler" graphics cards.

These patches are intended to address issues where the GPU's core clock speed doesn't change at all and produces a volting error, where Kepler won't clock to the higher cstates, higher voltage is used than NVIDIA's binary driver, and heat issues after clocking to the highest performance state.

Herbst is hoping to see this revised patch series well tested on an assortment of Kepler GPUs given they are invasive changes. More details via the Nouveau mailing list. The seven patches amount to just under 200 lines of new code.
