:I'm sorry but I guess it was my fault, rebuilding nvidia-driver helped.
:It worked correctly ever I was upgrading by world/kernel in the past,
:even I wasn't rebuilding the driver with them. Anyway I'm sorry.

    No problem.  You are saying that the nvidia module in /modules was
    out of date?  That would definitely lead to problems.

    Most driver modules depend on only a limited set of structures in the
    kernel.   But if one of those structures happens to change (and in this
    case the all-important vm_page structure recently changed) then you can
    get fireworks if the modules are out of date relative to the kernel. 
    It's always a good idea to rebuild the kernel and its modules rather
    then just the kernel.
