Correct, and thanks, this fixed it.

Safe mode was not enough to boot up without the module, so I was very
uncertain as to how I could recompile the culprit.

Then I found the boot console where I could type in something along the lines
of "disable-module nvidia" and then "boot-conf", which in turn continued
booting the box without loading the "old" nvidia.ko-module. Reinstall of
x11/nvidia-driver and a new reboot was what I needed to get back on track.

Big thanks to Samorodov and the rest of this list!
