Linux, Solaris, and FreeBSD driver 319.17 (long-lived branch release)

Release highlights since 319.12:

  • Fixed a regression that caused multiple BUG messages to be printed in the kernel log on SMP systems.
  • Fixed a bug that could cause the X server to crash when repeatedly enabling and disabling displays.
  • Updated nvidia-settings to preserve the relative positioning of displays when changing from a layout where multiple displays are on the same X screen to one where the same displays span multiple X screens.
  • Fixed nvidia-settings to dlopen(3) "", rather than "".
  • Added support for the following GPUs:
    • GeForce GT 720M
    • GeForce GT 735M
    • GeForce GT 740M
    • GeForce GT 745M
    • GeForce GT 750M
    • GeForce GTX 760M
    • GeForce GTX 765M
    • GeForce GTX 770M
    • GeForce GTX 775M
    • GeForce GTX 780M
  • Added nvidia-persistenced, a daemon utility, to the driver package. nvidia-persistenced can be installed to run on system startup or manually run to allow the NVIDIA kernel module to keep persistent driver state allocated when no other user-space NVIDIA driver components are running. This can improve startup time for other user-space NVIDIA driver components.
  • Added /usr/lib/modprobe.d to the list of directories where nvidia-installer may optionally install a generated modprobe configuration file to attempt to disable Nouveau.

My apologizes, I posted this with the wrong template: 319.* is the new long-lived branch.
