Default Re: Still get vdpau tearing. No composite, 256.53 driver

Hi. Likewise I have no composite. I built the 2.6.36-rc4-git1 kernel (yes, yes an out-of-band kernel), and the 256.53 driver would not build (and gave nasty messages about make oldconfig and make prepare on the kernel source... which are ineffective error messages), and I hunted through the nvidia build log. It complained once again (like the previous driver version) about ioctl in nv.c line 426, and so I commented line 426 out:
/* character driver entry points */

static struct file_operations nv_fops = {
.owner = THIS_MODULE,
.poll = nv_kern_poll,
/* .ioctl = nv_kern_ioctl, */
.unlocked_ioctl = nv_kern_unlocked_ioctl,

and the nvidia driver (256.53) now builds...., so JOY!, but like the previous driver, composite does not fly (my digital TV tuner works, but my analog TV tuner does not, since it needs composite). Is there going to be a fix anytime?
