Short answer, no. It is truly amazing what the Nouveau team has been able to accomplish in the relatively short time they have been working on the driver, but it is still significantly slower, is missing significant features (like video acceleration), and consumes alot more power than the blob.
EDIT: Also, the patch works very well for me. Thanks!
