[solved] kernel 3.2.8 fails with loading nvidia and virtualbox modules

Topic says it. I just updated from kernel 3.2.7 to 3.2.8 and X won't start. The kernel fails to load the nvidia module with the follwing error: 'Exec format error'. Same for the virtualbox kernel modules. This is on x86_64, multilib and all testing repos enabled.

Downgrade to 3.2.7 by

pacman -S core/linux

solves the issue.

Same here after 3.2.8-1; updating my nvidia drivers with pacman -Syyu then rebooting solved this for me in regards to X failing.

Solved with new incarnation of nvidia (and other) kernel modules.
