Default Re: SuSE 9.1 x86, 2.6.6-mm kernels and driver 5336 won't build

With the patch from www.minion.de, I now have 5336 working on kernel 2.6.6-mm2. The docs suggested I needed to have a kernel with CONFIG_REGPARM not set, however, such a kernel caused a segfault in hotplug.usb and the machine to freeze. With CONFIG_REGPARM=y, it's AOK.
***********BEWARE************* the 2.6.6-mm make-4k-stacks-permanent.patch can criple your hard drive, before I knew about the patch and nvidia, I ended up with a hard drive that would hang somewhere in init, but nearly all the data is accessible with it as hdc1/swap. On the second drive I installed SuSE 9.0 on, I checked my .config but forgot to reverse the patch and that time I had to do a fresh install with reformat of my root partition. init 5 was all it needed to do the damage.
