Hi all.

Just wanted to post my steps for getting this to work.

1) Download the patch from nwwt (nvidia forum user) from here: http://pastebin.com/raw/SEzxqaJD. I called it linux-4.6.patch
2) Create /etc/portage/patches/x11-drivers/nvidia-drivers and move the patch file there
3) emerge nvidia-drivers

Hope this save someone a little time.

Neat trick! I didn't know about /etc/portage/patches/ :D

For the patch itself, I think this one would be even better, as it includes conditionals to make sure it also compiles on kernels < 4.6.0:
