Asus UL30Vt - UL80Vt and Linux grub2-efi graphics card switch off

For those considering an Asus UL80Vt or UL30Vt, even if the BIOS doesn't specify an option to switch on/off the discrete graphics card, there is still an alternative in Linux, which is to use grub2-efi. It's been done for other linux hybrid graphics laptops (e.g. apple macbooks, sony vaio z-series, etc.) and it's in active development.

There are several Linux users investigating [1] with these kind of laptops, so it is reasonable to expect this feature to appear soon for Asus UL30/UL80 laptops.
