	I had the exact same release, and didn't know ANYTHING about that
patch, and it was working perfectly. I use the word "was" because last nite
I went to 5.2.1-RELEASE-p11, and I've had 3 lock ups since.  I've actually
reverted back to 5.2.1-RELEASE-p4 and it hasn't locked up yet.  

	I might apply that patch and add that function and see if things
calm down.

	Odd, all I had was :

        Identifier  "Card0"
        Driver      "nvidia"
        VendorName  "NVidia"
        BoardName   "0x0174"
        BusID       "PCI:1:0:0"

	(Mine was /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/XF86Config)

	I will have to try that also. Thanks for the leads.
