I have a GF 210 and Xorg gets a signal 11 and dumps core when I use
nvidia-driver (with kern.sugid_coredump=1).

Trying to debug the cause is basically impossible because
is a binary blob with no debugging symbols (stripped).

Luckily, works and so I can at least use the card with Xorg, even
if performance isn't exactly stellar.
