[  602.338974]  [<ffffffffa23554c1>] ? nv_kern_open+0x91/0x830 [nvidia]

Looks like a bug in nvidia's kernel code to me, which means it's not something we can fix.  Sorry.  You'll have to follow up with nvidia on this.

Hmm, funny, how did I know that would be the response.  Strange how the nvidia driver(s) have been working ok up until the update I did this weekend and then, suddenly, X stops working but it's nvidia's fault (even though nothing changed on their side).  I've fallen back to using nouveau again at this point (although I still have to use noaccel on the vmlinuz line in my grub2.cfg to get the nouveau driver to work).  Sigh....
