(Quoting Doug Goldstein from bug #447566 comment #56)
> It is and has always been Gentoo's policy to support what NVIDIA supports. The current versions of the drivers do not support 3.11. You are more than welcome to use the capabilities of epatch_user (which are present in all the ebuilds) to make the changes yourself but they do not go into the main tree.

Created attachment 357792 [details, diff]

This patch from the Nvidia list seems to work.

Sorry to ask here, i am confirm with linux, but not how to add this pathc.
Where do i have to place the attachement, and how to apply it?
While we advice you not to, as it voids your support / warranty; you can place it in /etc/portage/patches/x11-drivers/nvidia-drivers/ and emerging the drivers again will apply it. The patch looks quite small; so, it probably doesn't break.

So, better is to wait for a new xx1-drivers/nvidia-drivers in portage??

Yes, likely; unless you have a very specific reason to run 3.11 instead of 3.10.
there seems to be a different patch floating around
archlinux has also applied it
