Default How to limit VideoRam - XF86config-option ignored!?

I would like to limit the amount of VideoRam X uses on my GF3, because I'd really like to use a Portion of it for RamDisk or Swap. See
this page for details.

Unfortunatly the VideoRam option in XF86Config seems to be ignored by NVdriver. Although I specified VideoRam to be 32MB in XF86Config, my log reports:
(--) NVIDIA(0): VideoRAM: 65536 kBytes

The driver simply detects the amount of RAM on the Videoboard and uses all of it. I have looked into the source code to figure out how to change this behaviour, but didn't succeed.

Can anybody give me a hint?
