I have tried to use sgfxi -f to build nvidia 304.64 legacy driver for 3.8 kernel but it gives error (extra output snipped):

you either have configured kernel sources matching your
kernel or the correct set of kernel headers installed
on your system.

If you are using a Linux 2.6 kernel, please make sure
you have configured kernel sources matching your kernel
installed on your system. If you specified a separate
output directory using either the "KBUILD_OUTPUT" or
the "O" KBUILD parameter, make sure to specify this
directory with the SYSOUT environment variable or with
the equivalent nvidia-installer command line option.

Depending on where and how the kernel sources (or the
kernel headers) were installed, you may need to specify
their location with the SYSSRC environment variable or
the equivalent nvidia-installer command line option.

Is there a patch yet for this driver?

I had a patch but I wasn't sure if it worked for 3.8. I guess it doesn't.

I added more to the patch, they claim this works. Try it again.

I just installed the 3.8 siduction kernel. Nvidia-driver (313.18) did not compile with actual sgfxi nor did it compile manually.

this thread was about 304.64 / 3.8 kernel, I'm aware of the 313.18 issue, I put in the patches I found online for both, but updated for 304.64 because new stuff appeared.

the trick here is to find the proper patch for the driver and post a link to it so I can add it, usually with new kernels requiring patches it takes a week or two before google knows about the proper patch so I can find it.

I added another 313.18 patch for 3.8 kernel, I find the random changes of the linux kernel guys to be approaching near psychotic levels.

Is that patch for 304.64? If so I'll test it

OK tried the patch and it still doesn't work for me for 3.8 and it now broke for 3.7 Something seems amiss

Is there a way to revert to the original patch for 3.7 so I can at least get that working again?
