I'm concerned that this won't scale in the future. Perhaps a better
solution would be to add a "flags" or "features" field to struct
nouveau_device along with feature bits such as HAS_CALIBRATION or
similar.

That way we don't have to touch this code for every new future Tegra
chip. Unless perhaps if there's a reason to expect things to change in
newer generations.
