No, it isn't, even if the wrapper were LGPL'd it would, IIRC, be swallowed up and turned GPL when linked into the kernel at runtime, your GPL wrapper can't link to a non-GPL compatible module.

The nVidia wrapper is under GPL. The wrapper doesn't link to the binary driver, it loads it dinamically, so it's OK.
