I couldn't give a nats chuff what nvidia do with their milty-billions $ they 
certainly don't spend it on linux driver devel go look at tests done at 
phoronix.net compare what these cards can do in M$ to Linux.

One thing to say here, You don't seem to get that a tainted kernel adds a 
massive layer of unpredictability to all but nvidia. (not sure they know) :-)

I followed the link u posted and I have to say your bug has nothing to do with 
what the original poster was reporting at lkml. Just coincidence you both 
hung out at the same place. :-)  The poster was also given a successfull 
patch later problem solved.

"constructive comment " if I'm getting upto 5 lock-ups a day I'm going to be 
banging hell out of someones bugzilla until answers start commin out. tainted 
kernels are completely useless around here along with that phony bug report 
you posted but you knew that anyway. :-)
