If you have the nvidia kernel module loaded, it should be available by
(not exactly sure, i have the opensource driver activated as well, and
then this file is not there).
will show you the contents of the nvidia kernel module configuration
file. note that any changes made here need to be written to the
confiuration file really used (/etc/modules.conf) with modules-update.
The modules.d directory is used to make this configuration a bit more
modular (no pun intended ;)
FYI, i had exactly the same problems as you (X11 would go to 100% CPU
and thus lock up the machine when alt-tabbing in gnome no matter what
the load, i could only kill it via ssh) and also had to solve this
problem by switching to nv, thereby losing dual-head. So you're not
alone :) I also think there is a long thread in the gentoo forums
dedicated to this topic (titled "x11 crashes" or "x11 uses 100%CPU" or
something), but as far as I remember, there weren't any good solutions.
Hopefully newer combinations of kernel/nvidia-kernel will solve this
