There has been a patch available, since 2.5 version. It works perfectly.

I doubt Nvidia will release an official version until
2.6 goes stabe.

Those patches are always ten steps behind the bk snapshots.

happily that doesn't matter i01 as the patch still works. It patches the nvidia files not the kernel. Ocasionally it gets broken but it is quickly fixed.

I use 2.6.0-test9-bk7 at the moment, works perfectly. I guess to reflect this the labels have been tweaked recently to just 2.6 eg 'NVIDIA_kernel-1.0-4496-2.6.diff'

P.S. bk stands for bitkeeper, it's check it out at http://www.bitkeeper.com/ Basically bk snapshot are the bleeding edge releases of the linux kernel.
