3.4.2-rt10-1-rt x86_64 does work with the nv driver and a GeForce
7200GS, aka 7300 SE.
I always run into trouble with nouveau, but for the last months with
kernel-rt < 3.4.2-rt10-1-rt X couldn't start using the nv driver. For
the Arch linux (not linux-rt) kernels there never where issues with X,
while using the nvidia driver. Last and current version on Arch here is
3.3.8-1. A script is switching between nv and nvidia at startup,
regarding to the kernel I'll boot.

This list not only is scrappy regarding to the number of cards, but also
doesn't provide for all contingencies:

I only can portend to audio real-time, while for my gfx card are already
issues without audio real-time usage.

Dunno if you ask, because you do development for the driver or the
kernel. For all people who want a stable desktop, nouveau IMO seldom is
a good choice.
