Default Re: 285.03: X Server 1.11.0 IgnoreABI required to work

It may be that we need to skip xserver 1.11.0 if my hunch is correct and this is a bug in the X server.
Phoronix says:
Committed (in this Git commit) to the xorg-server tree this afternoon is a bump to the video driver ABI (ABI_VIDEODRV_VERSION) after developers noticed the video drivers built against the ABI of X.Org Server 1.10 are now producing a segmentation fault when running the latest server code. Developers have tracked down the change causing the seg-fault and it's intentional.

Because the tracked down change is intentional I do not think so it will be removed in later releases. So update to Nvidia seems to be required and not temporary. Intel video driver rebuild on my netbook against xorg 11 is working with new xorg.
