Note that I've compile tested the attached fix but don't have hardware to do run-time testing.

Thanks for the patch!

It's been suggested that this driver should be removed as it's not longer maintained (bug 1748000), so I'm not sure what the fate of this patch will be.

it is maintained by nvidia, i submitted a report to them .

how do I install the patch and where, driver kernel etc ?
i have compiled kernels, but not a patch as of yet

i have the hardware.

Could a ppa be created for the easy distribution of the patched version?

I'd love to have it too. It controlled the heating on my laptop better than any other version.

Could some friendly soul provide instructions on how to apply the patch from comment #2 ?

Or are there any chances it will be applied in a way that the proprietary driver manager will find the (patched) 304.137 driver again?

(the alleged patch on if-not-true-then-false seems to be something entirely different. I downloaded the patched driver there, and it fails with same 3 error messages)
