At first glance it appeared to work, but I'm about to do some more
testing since I just discovered that I have to kldload something
(anything) first in order to reproduce the problem. Weird.
One thing this patch definitely did do though, is break the nvidia
driver pretty badly. Couldn't keep the X server running for more than a
minute before it froze solid. Lots of Xid: blah blah blah messages.
Yes I remembered to rebuild the kernel module ;)
Oh, and if anyone is curious, I am able to reproduce the problem after
booting without nvidia.ko loaded, using qemu in -nographic mode. Just
wanted to rule that out since its code that's out of our control and
would be a prime target to blame if I didn't.
