Document workarounds for NVIDIA Maxwell series graphics cards
Originally created by @intrigeri on #12438 (Redmine)
Keywords: NV110 family, Maxwell, NV124 (GM204) chipset. See the parent ticket if you need details. Symptoms: the Greeter doesn’t start (Tails 3.0~beta3), or graphics operation are so slow it’s unusable (some Tails 2.x). As said on #11831 (comment 54831) I don’t see what we can do about it, so please add this to the Known Issues page, so that people get a chance to learn about this before they buy a fancy new laptop.
https://nouveau.freedesktop.org/wiki/CodeNames/#nv110familymaxwell and https://nouveau.freedesktop.org/wiki/FeatureMatrix/ have some background info & terminology.
Thanks in advance!
