Unhappy Cannot load nVidia driver on U30JC (Optimus)


I tried a lot of combinations but am totally unable to load the NVidia driver on a laptop with Optimus (Intel IGD + Nvidia G310M).

Tried every kernel from 2.6.31 up to 2.6.34, even after disabling i915, nouveau and all KMS stuff, irqpoll, the driver fails to load with :

NVRM: failed to copy vbios to system memory.
NVRM: RmInitAdapter failed! (0x30:0xffffffff:909)
NVRM: rm_init_adapter(0) failed

I guess the problem is related to the Optimus 'wiring' that the G310M
has to share/coordinate some IRQ/resources with the always-on IGD...
Does anyone have a workaround ? Or do I have to wait for a new driver release to fix this ?
