Not necessarily. We tripped over this one at SGI the other day,
though on IA64. Unfortunately I don't know the specifics of the
kernel that was being used, other than it is 2.6.5 based and fairly
heavily patched. But it most definitely did not have an nVidia
driver loaded. See the backtrace and related information below.

The theory right now is that SCSI support was compiled into the
kernel, but for some reason a load of scsi_mod.ko was attempted
from the initrd. This would obviously cause a problem as both
would try to create sgpool-8.

Unfortunately I have few other details. Just noting that this
has been seen elsewhere very recently.
