Moo... yes this is certainly the easiest solution, because nouveau is a
horrible rats nest. But when I spoke to Greg KH about this, he suggested
nouveau ought to be fixed.

Ben, I got terminally lost when trying to untangle nouvea init, is there
any chance this can be fixed to not hold that nvkm_device::mutex thing
while doing request_irq() ?
