Just upgraded to the latest driver, and yes i am still seeing it as
well. The issue is that nvidia has decided to warn people that these
framebuffer drivers may cause problems. They weren't supported earlier
too, but worked anyhow. But recently they are causing problems for some
people so nvidia thought it would be best to warn people about the use
of these drivers.

You must be having a vga= entry in your boot parameters, as do i. I
tried with vga=0 and didn't see this message.

See the following message by Uroš for more details.
