We have this warning in the Piwik admin interface:

Geolocation works, but you are not using one of the recommended providers. If you have to import log files or do something else that requires setting IP addresses, use the PECL GeoIP implementation (recommended) or the PHP GeoIP implementation.

We currently do Geolocation at a Nginx level, it is possible that it would now be better to switch to do it at a Piwik level, see the documentation here: http://piwik.org/docs/geo-locate/
