Default 1.0-7676 for x86-64/em64t and x86 updates

The attached patch addresses a kernel interaction problem on Linux/x86-64 systems that either don't support the no-execute page protection feature or on which this feature has been disabled by the SBIOS. To patch 1.0-7676 and install the updated driver, please follow the instructions below.

# sh /path/to/NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-1.0-7676-pkg2.run --extract-only
# cd NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-1.0-7676-pkg2
# patch -p0 < /path/to/NVIDIA_kernel-1.0-7676-1361053.diff.txt
# ./nvidia-installer -n

Please see http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=57990 for a patch that works around a bug in Linux/x86-64 kernels >= 2.6.11 and < 2.6.14 that can lead to severe stability problems.

The attached patch works around a bug in some Linux kernels' implementation of the change_page_attr() interface function with respect to the handling of large pages and the no-execute page protection feature. This bug can lead to system reboots. To apply the patch, please follow these steps:

# sh /path/to/NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-1.0-7676-pkg2.run --extract-only
# cd NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-1.0-7676-pkg2
# patch -p0 < /path/to/NVIDIA_kernel-1.0-7676-1321905.diff.txt
# ./nvidia-installer -n
