Ben,

I managed to solve the problem myself by tricking nv.c and nv-linux.h
into thinking that they should look for ALB_CONFIG instead of
XEN_CONFIG.

I have installed Intrepid's kernel in Hardy and tried both the latest
stable driver and the beta driver and they both build and work well:

:~$ uname -r
2.6.26-2-generic

:~$ glxinfo | grep direct
direct rendering: Yes

:~$ dmesg | grep NVIDIA
[  141.739966] nvidia: module license 'NVIDIA' taints kernel.
[  143.355221] NVRM: loading NVIDIA UNIX x86 Kernel Module  177.13  Tue
Jun 10 16:45:17 PDT 2008

:~$ grep CONFIG_XEN=y /boot/config-`uname -r`
CONFIG_XEN=y


In other words, PROBLEM SOLVED. 

Regards,

Alberto
