NVIDIA nightmare

NVIDIA continues to be a nightmare on my T410 hardware.

The proprietary driver does not resume correctly after the second suspend to ram. Not sure if it has something to do with the dock.

The nouveau driver continues to be affected by the famous bug 26980 which has been affecting for a while a set of GPUs, producing random freezes.

There was some hope in this comment, which points to this patch and stattes that using 2.6.38 with that patch improves the situation. I am trying to build Kernel:stable + this patch here.
