Default Re: 2.6.15-git1 build problems with 8178

It looks like this problem was introduced by Sam Ravnborg's recent KBUILD changes (see http://marc.theaimsgroup.com/?l=linu...9507221614&w=2), which cause a number of compile tests performed by the NVIDIA driver's conftest.sh to fail. The attached patch should help with this problem (the steps needed to patch the Linux/x86-64 driver are analogous to those below):

# sh /path/to/NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-8178-pkg0.run --extract-only
# cd NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-1.0-8178-pkg0
# patch -p0 < /path/to/NVIDIA_kernel-1.0-8178-1444349.diff.txt
# ./nvidia-installer -n
