Looks like a developer of the nouveau driver, Francisco Jerez, (open
source nvidia driver for linux) has started/succeeeded to get open-cl
working in an experimental branch.

Knowing that there are currently problems with open-cl compilers/drivers
for other platforms, maybe he will be interested in
supporting/helping/testing blender/cycles rendering on nouveau/nvidia
(though likely it won't be ready for users for quite some time)

Also, it's nice to know that there is/will be an open source


PS I realize it will be too early to actually work, but it might be nice
to contact him so he knows that blender is actively using open-cl.
