Update --

After booting through the older kernels, it looks like nvidia/gl works
with rt after all (it seems some auto-config lines didn't work on
previous xserver-restarts or reboots into the rt kernel).  Here are
the relevant xorg.conf sections that worked for me:


# Xorg configuration created by livna-config-display

Section "ServerLayout"
    Identifier     "Default Layout"
    Screen      0  "Screen0" 0 0
    InputDevice    "Mouse0" "CorePointer"
    InputDevice    "Keyboard0" "CoreKeyboard"

Section "Files"
    ModulePath   "/usr/lib/xorg/modules/extensions/nvidia"
    ModulePath   "/usr/lib/xorg/modules"

Section "Device"
    Identifier  "Videocard0"
    Driver      "nvidia"
    Option        "AddARGBGLXVisuals" "True"
    Option        "DisableGLXRootClipping" "True"
