Same for 2.6.35.5 using 256.53

For your info, I did run some tests today using a nVidia 9500GT

Kernel | Performance with NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-
| 256.53 | 260.19.04 (BETA)
----------------------------------------------------------
2.6.35.3 | good | good
----------------------------------------------------------
2.6.35.4 | bad | not tested
----------------------------------------------------------
2.6.35.5 | bad | ~ good
----------------------------------------------------------
2.6.36-rc4 | |
(git1-5) | failed | good
----------------------------------------------------------
2.6.36-rc4 | |
(git1) | failed | good
----------------------------------------------------------
