Searching for the error I came across the nvidia README [1] which,
under chapter 9 "Known Issues", in the section "Kernel virtual address
space exhaustion on the X86 platform" describes the error I'm
experiencing. The solution is to pass vmalloc=192MB (or 256MB) to the
kernel boot options. If i get the time tomorrow I will try it and
report if it works.
