FWIW I only try to keep xserver-xorg-video-nv for self build kernel-rt
and the proprietary nvidia what version ever is available (currently
173x) for self build kernel ex 2.6.39 with 'rt patch emulation'.
Last time when there were X upgrades the above mesa packages tried to
remove the nv and the proprietary 173x driver. I could unlock some x
packages, but had to lock this and no other mesa packages.
