It's been a while since the last nv driver release, so there have been quite a
number of accumulated changes.  This update adds a pile of new product names,
fixes a couple of bugs, and cleans up a lot of old code (thanks to Gaetan).  It
now also refuses to load if a kernel module is bound to the device, which will
prevent it from interfering with the nouveau module's framebuffer driver.
