@storkus,
Have you had a chance to try the 3.15 kernel?

@cwizardone No, but it looks like it doesn't matter: my laptop's display died yesterday--no backlight OR any kind of display in reflected light. Booting into Vista (which came with it and I kept on the old hard drive when I replaced it with an SSD) didn't fix it and winblows doesn't even show it on the monitor list, so it's clearly a hardware failure unless Nouveau wrote something into the BIOS the blew everything up. Interestingly, I can connect an external SVGA monitor which works in Vista and BIOS but NOT in the 3.14 Nouveau, even though it worked in some older Nouveau versions since I used it a couple of times during a LUG meeting a year or two ago.

Anyway, at this point its hard to point at how much was impending doom and how much was driver regression, and, at 7 years old or so, I've been thinking about buying or building a new computer for a few months now, so...
