Patched NVIDIA display driver for Linux 2.6.26-rc1

Lagging as usual (almost 2 revisions behind), the proprietary NVIDIA display driver is broken with the current Linux kernel. If you want to get it running, you can use this patched driver:

Tarball: nvidia-2.6.26-rc1.tar.bz2
(this is just the kernel module, you must install the 169.12 gl libraries along)

To compile, just run make module-install. For the curious, you can take a look at the diff.

I really hope we’ll get a shiny free and open source NVIDIA driver soon instead of this ugly blob.
