The -nvidia driver does not support KMS.  I do not know of any plans for
-nvidia to support KMS.  Because of this, we do not anticipate -nvidia
users will benefit as much from some of the boot improvement work being
done.  However, at least in Lucid, -nvidia is the best driver for
accelerated 3D performance.
