[Bug 1217585]


I applied that patch to Ubuntu Trusty 3.13.0-38.65, and it gives a huge
improvement. X no longer crashes on startup, and 3D acceleration works.

However I also get the glitchy noise a few times a second, except when
showing a static image. It is all over the screen, and sometimes appears
as triangles.

Running glxgears and Firefox at the same time also starts giving errors
in the kernel log pretty quickly.

  System hangs after some time with nouveau and GT240

Bug description:
  With the Nouveau driver I get random system hangs in the Live CD - any
  version since it was switched to nouveau up until today's daily
  images. It happens after half an hour to a couple of hours usage and
  affects installed systems as well, until they are switched to the
  proprietary driver.

  This is a well known bug in other trackers but I can't see it anywhere
  on Launchpad, so I'm reporting it and will add bug watches.
