What's the status regarding AMD64 NVIDIA Xorg drivers?  I know this has been 
raised several times in the past but since the release of FreeBSD 7.0 how 
near/far are we from having this?

If i'm not mistaken an NVIDIA representative said it required certain system 
calls to be implemented in order to port the drivers to the architecture 
correctly, what's the status on that? This has been bugging me for quite a 
while now.

My apologies in advance if this has already been discussed in relation to 7.0
