I downloaded from fernel.org kernel 2.6.6, patch TIOCGDEV and patch bk1.
I compiled it with Mantel's options and without 4K stacks.
Apart the fact that driver sym53C8xx is broken, it works fine and the
vvidia.ko module
compiles and load.

It seems that the new Mantel's kernels use 4K stacks without the option to
use 8K stacks.

I'll report to him.
