This caused the kernel to boot with nvidia instead of nouveau. Even better, the nvidia
driver decreased my CPU load tremendously in the application that I was working with.
From 90% (barely useable) to 30% (loafing along).

What do you get for
grep BLSCFG /etc/default/grub
The key to getting good answers is to ask good questions.
