In the previous discussion you said it was kernel 5.4 that had the problem. Which one is it?

Oops - titled wrong, breaks on the 5.4.0-9 kernel
As far as other bug - if that would suggest this would work on earlier driver, no such luck.

Did as fresh install updated, used the 435 driver.
Same result, prime sync works on the 5.3.x kernel, fails on the current 5.4.x kernel

summary: - Prime Synchronizationbreaks on kernel 5.3.0-24
+ Prime Synchronizationbreaks on kernel 5.4.0-9

Thanks. Sounds like we should be focusing on the kernel then and not waiting for an Nvidia update.
