I realise this driver is now EOL so there’s likely to be very little interest, but I just wondered if anyone has had any luck getting 340.108 to work with kernel 5.6-rc1.
I’ve got it building having fixed the various issues thrown up by 5.6-rc1, but the drm_legacy_pci_init/drm_legacy_pci_exit functions are now hidden in 5.6-rc1 and a naiive replacement with pci_register_device/pci_unregister_device results in the following failure on a Revo3700 (ION2):
[ 16.321446] nvidia: loading out-of-tree module taints kernel. [ 16.321484] nvidia: module license 'NVIDIA' taints kernel. [ 16.321487] Disabling lock debugging due to kernel taint [ 16.374053] nvidia 0000:01:00.0: vgaarb: changed VGA decodes: olddecodes=io+mem,decodes=none:owns=io+mem [ 16.375356] Error: Driver 'nvidia' is already registered, aborting... [ 16.375362] NVRM: DRM init failed

If I revert the kernel commit and make the drm_legacy_pci_init/exit functions visible then the modified 340.108 driver loads, and is working perfectly. However this isn’t really a long-term solution, so I need a helping hand with the driver initialisation when using pci_register_driver/pci_unregister_driver…
In the same PR there are 5.6-rc1 patches for 440.59 which is building, but I have no hardware to test the modified driver (see “xf86-video-nvidia: fix 5.6-rc1 build”) - mentioning it here in case it helps anyone else.
