I'd think so too, except for what happened with RH 9. The 4191 drivers (newest ones at the time) needed some of the same patches (the rmap one, specifically) before they would work, plus users needed to disable TLS using some glibc environment variable.

The "users" that I'm referring to are the users of the early RH 9 betas, BTW.

Anyway, nVidia did fix the issues the driver had with TLS. They released 4349 on the same day that RH released RH9 to its subscribers (Mar. 31). They then fixed a couple of bugs and released 4363 on Apr. 28.

So based on this, I'd expect that very soon after 2.6 goes final, there'll be another driver released. No guarantees, of course, just my gut feeling.
