CK only releases his patches for specific kernel versions and there is no guarantee that they will apply to a more recent version of the kernel, so you would need to fix them yourself to apply them to the latest development kernel.

I think the situation is similar with the nvidia module.

Fulgurance,

If you need to ask, probably not.

Its probably harmless to try as applying the ck patch set will most likely fail
If the patch applies cleanly, it may fail to build.

The binary blob nvidia-drivers working depends on where the kernel has changed.
This in easy to test by installing the kernel of your choice and then rebuilding nvidia-drivers.
As its a binary blob, it needs nvidia to patch it for the latest kernel. That won't happen until its out of -rc status.
