	nVidia has offered what many/most hardware vendors* do not: to
write and maintain a driver for their product.
	However, in order for that driver to be fully functional they
want certain improvements in FreeBSD - particularly the virtual
memory system.  Not an unreasonable request.
	Some work has been done; there was a post somewhere within the
last few months about John Baldwin making improvements.
	Check the archives of this list for pointers to the list of
changes and the status of the work.
