Details

After upgrade to kernel 3.2 nouveau driver produces corrupted image in X. On
bottom part of screen (~1/3) controls are invisible (some of them become
visible after mouse hover or scroll).

Switching to console seems to be slower than earlier. Occasional gpu lockup
occurs. Console works fine.

01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation NV34M [GeForce FX Go5200
32M/64M] (rev a1)

Nothing suspicious in dmesg.

Revert to 3.1 solves problem.

firmware is not needed anymore since ages, the kernel doesn't need it anymore.
