Default [UDEV] Can we have nvidia drivers which are sysfs aware ?

Since udev seems to be pretty usuable, we need drivers compatible with it.
(udev is a replacement for devfs)
To make a driver work with udev, it should use /sys instead of /proc to give informations about the hardware/device.

So, can we have such a driver, or a patch ? maybe there is already one ?

A sysfs/udev patch already exists. Gentoo uses it.

It works well here.
