nVidia (the company) removed or broke the /dev/nvidia0 retrace function
in recent drivers. There is no driver that supports both; drivers prior
to 61xx that seem to support OpenGL are actually broken in various ways
and can crash. And no, if you've build with OpenGL support and your
hardware supports it, there's no way to disable it.

If you're on Debian: 'apt-cache show systune' will tell you. It's a
package for managing settings like this under /proc so they're reapplied
at boot. For testing you can just 'echo 1024 >
/proc/sys/dev/rtc/max-user-freq' (as root); it will hold until you reboot.

Experimental A/V Sync tried to use /dev/nvidia or DRM, or failing that
would use a poor sleep implementation. Video as Timebase tried to use
/dev/rtc or a different poor sleep implementation. With neither
selected it would use sleep with busy-wait if "jitter reduction" was on,
or just sleep if not. OpenGL is new.
