I expect someone tried that already..., I would try to run the latest
Nvidia binary driver.

The linux nvidia driver does not support "optimus" and according to
google, X will not start if installed.

A boot flag pwroff_dev_if_no_driver=<pci-id> will indeed be very useful.

I rather thought about a per-device sysfs switch like "power_off_unused",
meaning "turn me off if there's no dirver" and (perhaps) a kernel command
line switch enabling (or disabling) that feature altogether.
