Optimus Linux Support

While many Linux users might be digruntled about NVidia's decision not to support for Optimus in the past, right now, there might be some hope as Aaron Plattner from NVidia is reviewing Dave Airlie's work on RandR 1.4 and PRIME buffer sharing and he has mentioned that he got a proof of concept working.

It's a long journey to have this feature officially supported by NVidia's blob driver, but i guess many Linux users will be happy with this news. I'm hoping that soon enough, they will support hybrid GPU and i can enable NVIdia on my laptop which has been disabled everytime i boot.
