FreeBSD 10.0 Release. AMD64

Source and ports up to date as of 11-Oct-2014

The ports tree recently updated the NVIdia driver to 331.67.

  Since then when I attempt to boot my system with the 
"nvidia_load="YES", the loader traps and dies, and puts a CPU register 
dump on the the line "nvidia_load="YES", and dumps in screen a 
CPU register state then dies.

Things used to work peechee until the update....Now I have to rem the 
line in the boot/loader.conf file....and manually kldload the module 
after boot up. Everything works peechee from that moment on.

Upon manually kldloading the errors.

Linux is built into my custom kernel.

All things were built with the default compile time flags No exceptions 

I don't even know where to begin looking for this problem. And web 
crawling doesn't return any search results.

As my system is backed up...I hard-wiped my install and installed 10.1 
RC-1....Issue shows up there to with all at defaults.

So I re-hard-wiped my system and did a clean install of 10.0 
release.....Issue remains regardless if I install the NVidia modules 
from the binary repos....or build it from ports. And the issue remains 
regardless if I use the default shipping kernel and load linux in 
loader.conf......or use my custom kernel where linux is built in.

Then I tried a different system.....same results. It seems to be 
pointing to a faulty nvidia-driver port and build.

Does anyone have any idea what may be going on?

Should I download the latest driver directly from NVidia and install it?

Remember, this is a system which has been working flawlessly...then the 
nvidia update, and the broken loader where it displays a CPU register 
dump then crashes.

Sincerely and respectfully,
