in that case you could either stop X and work in the console ...
or just do the following steps, since obviously only the nvidia-uvm
module in interesting here, there is no need for rebooting:
$ sudo modprobe -r nvidia_uvm # unload
$ lsmod | grep nvidia_uvm # expect empty result
$ nvidia-modprobe -u ; echo $? # load it; print return code
$ lsmod | grep nvidia_uvm # expect non-empty result
$ sudo nvidia-modprobe -u # if previous load didn't
# succeed, retry as root
$ lsmod | grep nvidia_uvm # now it must be loaded
Are there any hardening settings enabled on your system that could
prevent this setuid executable from doing its job?
* filesystems mounted with option nosuid
BTW, which version of the nvidia-modprobe package do you have installed?
