I take it back.

I can't seem to figure out how to compile modules properly for this
kernel. The tree provided by linux-headers is in /usr/src/linux-3.0-ARCH
but modprobe/insmod won't load any module built against this as their
vermagic will be different from 3.0.0-ARCH.

For instance, Ionut, it seems that the module from your nvidia package
won't even be found by modprobe since it's in /lib/modules/3.0-ARCH and
not /lib/modules/3.0.0-ARCH, and even if you try to insmod it, you get:

	insmod: error inserting '/lib/modules/3.0-ARCH/kernel/drivers/video/nvidia.ko.gz': -1 Invalid module format

due to the vermagic mismatch.

Am I missing something obvious here?
