Description:
I have an HP EliteBook 8540p with an NVIDIA NVS 5100M GPU, which has been unable to boot properly ever since I upgraded to kernel 5.15. I can see the systemd boot messages fine, but when it tries to launch my display manager (SDDM), it goes to a completely black screen and stays there indefinitely. I still cannot see anything when switching between different ttys, although I can still (blindly) log in and run commands. This issue persists even on the latest kernel release (5.15.4-arch1-1).

Additional info:
* package version(s)
linux 5.15.4-arch1-1
systemd 249.7-1
xorg-server 21.1.1-3
xf86-video-nouveau 1.0.17-2

* config and/or log files etc.
The end of my Xorg.0.log reads as follows (timestamps removed):

(II) NOUVEAU(0): NVEnterVT is called.
(EE) NOUVEAU(0): failed to set mode: Invalid argument
(EE)
Fatal server error:
(EE) failed to create screen resources(EE)

* link to upstream bug report, if any

Steps to reproduce:
Attempt to boot into Arch Linux installation with the config described above.
