+2.6.5(mm or not) with nvidia [!SOLUTION!]

In 2.6.5(mm), known malfunction in 2.6.6-rc1.

I recently upgraded to 2.6.5-mm6, everything went fine...
When reinstalling the nvidia package everything went fine...

But X failed starting, why? It said 'blah blah No screens found' and something about being unable to initialize nvidia:
So I tried 'modprobe nvidia', said something like 'Invalid Module Format'...

Fear not !
Download this:

and do(while in /usr/src/linux)
patch -R -p1 < move-__this_module-to-modpost.patch
Recompile the kernel...
And it'll magically work...
