Default 180.44 Interupts problem on 2.6.30-rc8

I used the kernel source from the Ubuntu Jaunty package nvidia-180-kernel-source to build a module for my custom kernel. First, I applied this patch to the source:


Then I booted my kernel in single user mode, cd'ed into the source directory, ran 'make module', 'module install', and 'modprobe -v nvidia'. I didn't see any errors. I booted into the normal runlevel after that but got this error from X:

(II) NVIDIA(0): Creating default Display subsection in Screen section
    "Default Screen" for depth/fbbpp 24/32

(II) UnloadModule: "nvidia"
(II) UnloadModule: "wfb"

(EE) Screen(s) found, but none have a usable configuration.
So I checked the readme:

This can be caused by a variety of problems, such as PCI IRQ routing errors, 
I/O APIC problems or conflicts with other devices sharing the IRQ (or 
their drivers).

If possible, configure your system such that your graphics card does not 
share its IRQ with other devices (try moving the graphics card to another 
slot if applicable, unload/disable the driver(s) for the device(s) sharing the 
card's IRQ, or remove/disable the device(s)).

Depending on the nature of the problem, one of (or a combination of) these kernel parameters might also help:
Parameter 	Behavior
pci=noacpi 	don't use ACPI for PCI IRQ routing
pci=biosirq 	use PCI BIOS calls to retrieve the IRQ routing table
noapic 	don't use I/O APICs present in the system
acpi=off 	disable ACPI
This didn't really help me. I tried adding all four boot options in Grub but that ended up in the same result.

Attached is my bug report file.
