Default Nvidia driver 1.0-3123 VIA 4x issues.

I have been using the Nvidia drivers on linux for a long long time, I have always had no problems getting AGP4x to work on my VIA motherboard. I would just edit the os_registy.c file, and switch:

-static int NVreg_EnableVia4x = 0;
+static int NVreg_EnableVia4x = 1;

Now with the 3123 I do that but it still stays at 2x,

here is my output:

cat /proc/driver/nvidia/agp/status
Status: Enabled
Driver: NVIDIA
AGP Rate: 2x
Fast Writes: Enabled
SBA: Enabled

cat /proc/driver/nvidia/agp/host-bridge
Host Bridge: Via Apollo Pro
Fast Writes: Supported
SBA: Supported
AGP Rates: 2x 1x
Registers: 0x1f000213:0x00000112

With the older drivers it would always say:

AGP Rate 4x 2x 1x, now I only get 2x 1x.

Trust me I have done everything to get this working, its not a screw up on my end.

The 3123 Nvidia drivers are broken.
