Maybe nvidia uses old and deprecated and no more supported files like /var/run/acpid.socket or the deprecated proc file system for ACPI and not the sys file system.
Nvidia don't get it to write there needs to the Requirements. !!! ALL REQUIREMENTS !!!

Chapter 2. Minimum Software Requirements
Software Element
Min Requirement
Check With...
Linux kernel 2.4.7 cat /proc/version
XFree86/X.Org 4.0.1/6.7 XFree86 -version/Xorg -version
Kernel modutils 2.1.121 insmod --version
If you need to build the NVIDIA kernel module:
Software Element
Min Requirement
Check With...
binutils 2.9.5 size --version
GNU make 3.77 make --version
gcc 2.91.66 gcc --version
glibc 2.0 ls /lib/libc.so.* > 6

That's all !
Maybe detailed information should be supported in a table for each card or a specal section for each card !
Maybe the driver uses HAL or other things that relay on that old and no more supported software.
If it is so, nvidia has to support such mechanisms on there own and include them in there drivers.
There is no word how a kenel have to look like, what is needed to be compiled in or as module of the kernel. A graphics driver is a fundamental driver and should support the best and fastest access and information to applications !

I hope nvidia get it the next time this driver to work.
I wait now one year for a working driver.

bug is:

(EE) NVIDIA(0): The NVIDIA kernel module does not appear to be receiving
(EE) NVIDIA(0): interrupts generated by the NVIDIA graphics device
(EE) NVIDIA(0): PCI:4:0:0. Please see Chapter 8: Common Problems in the
(EE) NVIDIA(0): README for additional information.
(EE) NVIDIA(0): Failed to initialize the NVIDIA graphics device!
