Posting this in case anybody else needs this. I still have a system with an old built-in nvidia card in it that requires the old 96.43.23 nvidia driver.

I didn't write this patch. The original was written for Arch Linux. I modified the patch file to work with portage.

Code:

The original is here: https://github.com/City-busz/city-repository/tree/master/nvidia-96xx-dkms

I also have the 173.14.36-37-gentoo.patch, 173.14.37-38-gentoo.patch, and linux-3.17.patch from his site in my patches directory. Not sure if they're still needed, but the driver seems to be working, so I'm leaving them alone.
