I haven't had CONFIG_REGPARM set in any of the kernels. 2.6.4-rc2-mm1 was fine until after I first booted 2.6.4-mm1, then neither would work with nvidia. I also got some strange stuff happening, including checksum errors on the driver and I had to download it again from on two occasions, the first redownload reinstalled once, then chksum errors, the second redownload did the same as well as chksum segfaulting, since then it's been fine. See also the garbage I get out of vi in an earlier posting.
