Ah, so you operate independently as well as outside of the world of
portage do you?!? Shame! ;-)

Anyway, I don't much know what the Gentoo devs do to patch
gentoo-sources. I've gone back and forth between the two at different
times. One reason to stick with gentoo-sources is that vanilla-sources
(and presumably source directly from kernel.org) isn't supported by
Gentoo Security. Not sure how important that is to an individual
though.

Dunno. I can only report that my laptop seems happy with
gentoo-source-3.3.0 + nvidia-drivers-295.20-r1. Frame rate is OK. No
weird messages so far in dmesg. Nothing much else to report.

Have fun,
Mark
