Yea, it's not. While I was in the Linux driver section of the PowerVR
website, I also saw this:

"We have currently no plans of providing drivers supporting updated kernels."

Where "updated kernels" refers to > 2.4. Ouch. Too bad there isn't a
large enough developer community to make an open-source driver

Maybe if Nokia pressured TI who then pressured PowerVR...I know, I
know, not gonna happen.
