I'm confused.... this isn't 4kstack related at all....
you said there were 4 problems associated with 4kstacks. I'm still
waiting to hear
about 4kstack specific problems that are not associated with the
nvidia binary driver.
That being said...the bug reports you list below give prospective on
the problem..the module was previously listed as unsupported in fc1.
Clearly no one in the userbase decided to try to do a test install
during fc2 testing on this hardware, thats a shame.
But making a driver disk that includes the module you need should work,

I encourage you to find the solution that best fits your needs.  No
one expects Fedora to fit the needs of everyone. There are no perfect
solutions, pick the distribution that best fits your legacy,current
and future needs. That being said, if you read the mailinglist thread
i posted ealier, you perhaps will understand why kernel developers
want to remove this configuration choice from mainline..and why the
4kstacks is thought to be better overall. Configuration choices come
at a cost to development and matainence. And like i said before, other
then the nvidia bug, I am not personally aware of another 4kstacks
specific problem, let alone 3 more of them as you orginally stated.
