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 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. Frank Peters
