Works on 4.0 and 4.1, but not on 3.16 due to this error:

FATAL: modpost: GPL-incompatible module nvidia.ko uses GPL-only symbol
recipe for target '__modpost' failed

This goes away when I hack away CONFIG_XEN from the headers auto.conf. I
do not see anything else that we could disable in nv-linux.h or that we
are missing in conftest.h. Any clue where that comes from?

Kind regards,
