I did not disable register arguments, and it's all working great
w/nVIDIA 5336 and a vanilla 2.6.6, 5 days up w/working, gaming, and all. 
I think that 4K stacks is the only show-stopper. (I'm guessing it's
working because the interfaces are in fact recompiled every time, when
installing the nvidia driver, and they will also be compiled with the
-mregparm=3 gcc flag)

..or maybe I'm just lucky.
