Nouveau is broken. You had to agree to it when you
installed it.

By this do you mean xf86-video-nouveau?

Messages come from the kernel module nouveau...

Most nouveau GPU acceleration to be precise. This is delivered in
concert by the kernel dri driver, mesa dri driver, and the X11 nouveau
driver. If you remove some of these bits you lose the ability to
accelerate rendering projection of 3d models on your 2d screen surface
and the ability of the window manager to wobble your windows as you
drag them across your screen but the stability of your graphics
hardware will likely increase because most of its features will go
unused.
