Package: nvidia-kernel-source
Version: 169.12-1
Followup-For: Bug #476504

After reviewing the full bug report, and patching the source and Makefile.modpost everything is working great. 

A big win for HP laptop users with MCP51/nVidia who are experiencing the hwclock issues reported in #426171 that
are now resolved by 2.6.25 and have working GUI now too.
