Because of a patch from -mm merged in mainstream i cannot get the nvidia
binary to work with the 2.6.6 release candidates. I get this message
when doing `modprobe nvidia`:

FATAL: Error inserting nvidia (/lib/modules/2.6.6-rc2/video/nvidia.ko):
Invalid module format

On advice of mcp i tried reverting the following patch, which made it
load again.

Is there any long-term solution for this comming up? TIA

Could you send me your .config?
