Ok, I looked into that a bit more. I found out that nvidia.ko corrupts, not just on the place it should be as module, but practically anywhere. I believe this has to do with a rare bug in my raid drivers.
At this moment I'm running my linux system from a normal IDE harddisk (I haven't even loaded the raid drivers). Now installing the latest drivers works fine, restarting too.
However, the random crashes I experienced (which was the original reason to upgrade to the latest drivers) still persist. Because the raid drivers aren't loaded, they can't be the problem.
After a while the whole system freezes. sysrq doesn't respond. sshd doesn't respond. My two monitors still display everything that I was doing, but freezed. No artifacts though.
I've attached the new bug report.
