nvidia 495.44 is also broken in my system (both X11 and Wayland) with a GTX 
1070. You can always install nvidia-470xx-dkms and everything else you need 
(e.g. nvidia-470xx-settings, opencl-nvidia-470xx) from AUR. Only be carefull 
with cuda and cudnn, because latest version require driver 495. But use 
previous release, and everything works just fine with linux 5.15.
