Thank you for guiding me :) .

I'll be working on this, but as that progresses, I have a question:

So even if this firmware looks trivial to replace, all the fields seem
related to the 3D acceleration, so at first we can just try patching
the code not to report an error if the loading fails.

What if I run (raw) Linux? Would there be a way to retrieve those values 
of =gpu_info_firmware_v1_0=? (with a debugger, may be?). Then, we could 
have 3D acceleration as well (or at least advance in that regards). The 
values seem to be =uint32_t=, not pointers or anything special. I am 
familiar with =uint32=, and I guess that =uint32_t= would be similar.
