The KMS effort is primarily for those who don't have a dedicated nvidia chip. X11 doesnot support nVidia optimus because it's bound the the adapter it was started with. You can of cause start X11 on both adapters and switch the active contexts, but I doubt that serves power saving which is what optimus is there for.

GNOME is running fine for me, so I think the patches should work on your laptop, too.
- Grab 10-CURRENT using csup or SVN
- Apply the latest all.X.Y.patch in http://people.freebsd.org/~kib/drm/
- Rebuild world and kernel
- Fetch Ports using csup or portsnap
- Fetch the development repo for X11: http://wiki.freebsd.org/Xorg
- Code: Select all
- Install the required ports (X.Org, GNOME/KDE/XFCE, etc.)
I've tried installing [port]x11/nvidia-driver[/port], but it causes my computer to reboot when X.Org starts. Anyway, it will work fine without the GPU.
There's also a backport of all.X.Y.patch for 9-STABLE (it isn't maintained by kib@), so you don't have to run 10-CURRENT. There's a link to it in a post on this forum.
