With KMS disable nouveau or ati may not work - on some machines they run
early, than blacklist will work (systemd related :( ) We need 'nomodeset'
to prevent run any KMS part. With 310 this work OK, but with 313 strongly
need. In next drivers i will plan use Fedora-way and add to kernel grub2
line more options (in Fedora used all posible way - disable KMS, blacklist
and etc - i think with systemd and latest pre-load modules kernel model
strongly need avoid all situation).
