Hello fellow testers,

In the intrest of making PC-BSD 9.2 the best it can be
there are currently Hangs with the nvidia driver on CURRENT

PC-BSD is now a rolling release and things are getting MFC'd quickly
there is a thread on current at freebsd.org titled

Hang with nvidia-driver

in it it mentions the PR
http://www.freebsd.org/cgi/query-pr.cgi?pr=ports/181144

I can confirm that the fix is NOT that PR but infact this
http://pastebin.com/RELMnQxY


We should monitor this situation closely and if FreeBSD doesn't patch
the Nvidia port, we should consider shipping with that patch.
