[nouveau] 7600 GT SLI (almost)

Thought the list might be interested in how nouveau worked (or didn't) on my 
system.  I've heard that nouveau doesn't support SLI, but I thought I'll give 
it a try.  

Xorg -configure detects the  the two cards separately and attempts to run Xorg 
with the default configuration fails.  After stripping any reference to the 
second card (and screen, I only have one screen attached) Xorg worked fine and 
KDE compositing (with Xrender) is smooth [much better than nv].  

glxinfo reports direct rendering and glxgears give FPS of ~315.  KDE desktop 
effects does not work with OpenGL (and nouveau), is this expected to work?

Thank you for the hard work, I'm happily running nouveau on FreeBSD 8-pre 
64bit.  :->



P.S. I'm happy to test any patches (including for SLI)
