Default Unable to disable SBA on an Asus a8v deluxe

Due to stability issues (the familiar Xid errors) I tried to disable SBA and FW by using the options NVreg_EnableAGPSBA=0 and NVreg_EnableAGPFW=0 in /etc/modprobe.conf.

After running depmod -a as root and rmmod-ing en insmod-ing the nvidia kernel module again /proc/drivers/nvidia/agp/status shows me the following:

[sven@ummon ~]$ cat /proc/driver/nvidia/agp/status
Status: Enabled
AGP Rate: 8x
Fast Writes: Disabled
SBA: Enabled

The same thing occurs if I don't use the module parameters at all.

I can disable FW but not SBA in the BIOS setting menu (no such option available). I checked several different BIOSes for this mobo but afaik none of them have the option to disable SBA.

So apparently the NVreg_EnableAGPSBA=0 option does not work when SBA is enabled by the systems BIOS. Is this a known issue that will be fixed? Is there any other way to disable SBA until that time?

Thanks in advance.

Words! Nothing but sweet, sweet words that turn into bitter orange wax in my ears.
