Default Nvidia driver version 96.43.19 module corrupted on Scientific Linux 6

On Scientific Linux 6 (perhaps also on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6), trying to load the compiled kernel module for legacy driver 96.43.19 fails with an error message like this:
insmod: error inserting './usr/src/nv/nvidia.ko': -1 Accessing a corrupted shared library
Simultaneously, this is logged:
Verify ELF error [sec 33 note 12] (assertion 286)
Module failed ELF checks
The installer quits after it has compiled the module and failed to load it. I'm attaching the log.
Any ideas?

Hmm, no comments. Is this working for everyone else or does no one else use a legacy card in such a system?

For any future reference to those whom it might concern;

This is the same issue as reported with a working patch at the ElRepo bugs here. Since the nVidia license forbids modifying the binary, a working driver can still not be distributed by ElRepo or anyone else. An earlier request for nVidia to fix it instead can be read here.
