Default Kernel 2.4.21-ac2 Kills Nvidia drivers!

As a warning to anyone compiling Alan Cox's 2.4.21-ac2 kernel it seems to kill the newest Nvidia vga drivers, and the nvnet driver. I'm going to do some more testing to make sure and all, but so far my X locks up, and my DSL going through the onboard NIC don't work.

In the good news console mode works just fine.

Using 2.4.21-ac2 here for a few days, no problems.

nvagp ok, nvnet ok, but I can't test nvidia vga as I have a Radeon and use dri-cvs.

But ACPI is not working yet ):
