You should report this to the kernel package (linux-2.6) with as much
information as possible. (Details about machine, board, CPU, BIOS, ...)
Please try to reproduce the problem without the nvidia module being
loaded as bugs in not tainted kernels are generally preferred. If you
load it from /etc/modules, just comment it there for the test.
