You are using a kernel that is affected by the subject of this thread, any kernel newer than 2.6.4-1.253 is definitely affected. In order to use the nVIDIA driver you must rebuild the kernel without the option discussed above -- or you can compile a stock kernel version rather than the Fedora Devel kernel, but I recommend rebuilding the RPM instead.
