For that reason, packager of the driver has choosen to use /usr/lib64/xorg/modules/extensions/nvidia and add this path to the ModulePath in xorg.conf.

It could be nice to have the nvidia-xconfig tool to know about this possibility. But it could be even more interesting (while we are talking to have correct name of the backend driver for the libvdpau wrapper using dri2) to have the driver itself to use such ModulePath so the correct glx.so (or eventually glx.so.%{version} ) would be appropriately choosen. (without hardcoding it in xorg.conf).

Then the same would be needed for the linker to choose the appropriate libGL.so... I wonder if that can be implemented the same as sse library path would be enabled when cpu is capable of.

Once that said, you need to send the output of nvidia-bug-report.sh
