Bug Description

Please sync nvidia-cuda-toolkit 10.1.105-1 (multiverse) from Debian experimental (non-free)

Explanation of FeatureFreeze exception:
New upstream version with support for the latest GPU devices.
* Support added for GCC 8 and Clang 7
The packages contain pre-compiled binaries so there is no opportunity to backport fixes from future versions, so shipping the newest possible version in Ubuntu is desirable.

This has not been uploaded to Experimental yet (it was only released at the end of February, 2019) and will need to clear Debian NEW, so I may end up uploading 10.1.105-0ubuntu1 directly (but using the same orig.tar.xz) .

I have already tested snapshots from Debian's git in a PPA for amd64 and ppc64el, and rebuilding all reverse-dependencies; caffe-contrib, eztrace-contrib, hwloc-contrib,
pycuda and starpu-contrib. Only caffe-contrib and starpu-contrib
required minor changes to switch from gcc-7/g++-7 to the default 8.

Sounds like a good idea.

I'd suggest doing that sooner rather than later, to get this stabilised in disco ASAP.
