Default kvm windows 7 guest segfaults under centos 5.7 with 285.05.09 driver from elrepo

basically, kvm guests would randomly segfault even when no console was being displayed. i normally use rdp to talk to my windows guest anyway, and i use vnc as the console, so very little activity should be going through the nvidia libraries.

i'm not going to be able to give much more detail since i had to drop back to 280.13 in order to keep my windows guest stable, but i was able to get the following stack trace from one of the segfaults.

#0 0x0000003a4a200a08 in _nv007tls ()
from /usr/lib64/nvidia/tls/
#1 0x00000030d4e05ad9 in __nptl_deallocate_tsd () from
#2 0x00000030d4e0674b in start_thread () from /lib64/
#3 0x00000030d42d44bd in clone () from /lib64/

and that address has been consistent through numerous segfaults:

let me know if sending the nvidia-bug-report data would be useful given that i've gone back to the previous release.
