Perfect, thanks in advance.

To trigger the event one has to echo into a sysfs file... Don't recall
exactly, some of the following should be it.
a) If the nvidia module is driving an fbcon:
 - echo "0" > /sys/class/vtconsole/vtconX/bind
b) and/or a combination of the following
 - echo "remove" (or was it "unbind") > /sys/class/drm/cardX/device/uevent
 - echo "remove" (or was it "unbind") >
 - echo "1" > /sys/class/drm/cardX/device/driver/unbind
