The only way for nvidia to not be loaded if you're doing early loading, is if your
nvidia modules are not on the initramfs in the first place, or old ones are there,
which can't be loaded to a new kernel.

All of this is easy to find out and fix. You can probably fix both by having a pacman hook
to re-create the initramfs when only the nvidia module is updated.
