Sorry, I don't know why this is happening. Most probably the problem is
that the kernel is too new. The "rdt" series kernels are based on really
really recent kernels (for example 0.5.rdt is based on 2.6.11-rc3). So
things may have changed in the internals of the kernel that are not
contemplated in the nvidia glue code. In terms of patches I'm not really
adding much to the base kernel with the exception, of course, of Ingo's
realtime preempt patches...
