It's not much of a patch. It involves only copying a few files
from one directory to another. Apparently, these files are
auto-generated by the new kernel and placed in the wrong location
(wrong for Nvidia).

Out of habit, I still use the kernel sources from kernel.org.
I have an automated build/install for this from a long time
back. But maybe I'll look into the gentoo-sources one day.
Thanks for the tip.
However, checking the Changelog for gentoo-sources I do not
see any indication of a possible patch to fix 3.3.0. Maybe
I'm just not looking in the right place.
