Dell Studio XPS 1340

A machine with TWO NVIDIA cards, not Optimus. http://en.gentoo-wiki.com/wiki/Dell_Studio_XPS_1340 Lspci and others: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux/+bug/766548/comments/1 Submitted .dsl files: https://bugs.launchpad.net/lpbugreporter/+bug/752542/comments/178

This machine has a NVIDIA DSM UUID on handle \_SB.PCI0.IXVE.IGPU._DSM (which calls methods like \_SB.PCI0.XVR0.Z01I.DGOF for disabling the discrete card). \_SB.PCI0.IXVE.IGPU is the integrated GPU handle, \_SB.PCI0.XVR0.Z01I the discrete one. bbswitch is not going to work with this machine for now.
