nv is the open-source driver from xorg, if your xorg.conf entry
specifies nv then you've not actually been the using the driver from
the nvidia site, which is called nvidia.

x11/nvidia-driver is the port of nvidia's binary, the open source
version has only got its own port with the modularization of xorg in
7.2.
