So hopefully it should be fixed for good in -rc3-mm2 if it happens, or 2.6.10-mm1, if that's the next -mm version.

Patch attached....
Thanks for the patch, It will come in handy. I had already manually made those changes though as I wanted to tryout the realtime-preempt patches and have nvidia too.

So far, I like the realtime-preempt.
