I have still two "problems":

1) The blacklist does not work as expected. intelfb and nvidiafb is still 
loaded by udev (tested on two different machines)

2) In 51-arch.rules I have found the following:

### xorg resets those permissions, adjust your xorg.conf!
KERNEL=="nvidia*",	GROUP="video"

Isn't this rule useless at all? Permissions are still 

crw-rw-rw- 1 root root 195,   0 11. Mär 01:08 /dev/nvidia0
crw-rw-rw- 1 root root 195, 255 11. Mär 01:08 /dev/nvidiactl

Perhaps Something like this should be added to modprobe.conf or modporbe.d:

options nvidia NVreg_DeviceFileUID=0
options nvidia NVreg_DeviceFileGID=91
options nvidia NVreg_DeviceFileMode=0660

Of course this should be done by the nvidia-utils package.
