this is not good.
So we have -rc7+, this patch has been out there for 2 months and still
not in Linus' tree.
the patch below fixes a build failure here with my custom config. I
think this late in the game, we need some kind of a fix before 3.9 is
released. I'm adding the patch here in case you want to pick it up

Subject: [PATCH] drm/nouveau: always select ACPI_VIDEO if ACPI is enabled.
Having nouveau builtin would still allow ACPI_VIDEO to be used as
external module if some of the deps for acpi_video have not been met,
which would result in a linking failure. Solve this by selecting all
dependencies as well.
