The problem is pointing at the kernel and not the nVidia driver. But
what would I know.

If Nvidia provides a driver whose binary part depends on paravirt, the
driver is broken and not the kernel! At least Nvidia should then provide
two drivers, one for a kernel with and one without paravirtualisation
support. That is one of the problems when choosing to go the binary-only
route.

And as user of binary-only drivers (BTW, I also use the nvidia driver) you
have to expect problems like that.
