Unhappy nVidia driver and non-stable Linux kernal versions are incompatible??

Attempting to configure the driver for anything other than a stable, i.e., 2.6.15 or 2.6.15.3, kernel, or one of the kernels that comes with RHEL 4 WS, always fails. This means I cannot run X if I'm running -mm or -rt kernels. The failure seems to always be the same:
/tmp/selfgz7843/NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-8178-pkg1/usr/src/nv/os-interface.c:137
5: error: structure has no member named `rlim'

is there a patch to fix this? Or is it the intention of nVidia to *not* support experimental Linux kernels?

You should be able to build against most kernels after applying the patch available from http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=62021; development/pre-release kernels are not supported, though.

How are development/pre-release kernels defined?
The referenced thread mentions 2.6.15-rc5 - does this mean that release candidates
*are* supported but that -mm ones are not?
Thanks.
