Bug Description

Introduce the 470 NVIDIA ERD (-server) series in Bionic, Focal, Hirsute.

[Impact]
These releases provide both bug fixes and new features, and we would like to
make sure all of our users have access to these improvements.

See the changelog entry below for a full list of changes and bugs.

[Test Case]
The following development and SRU process was followed:
https://wiki.ubuntu.com/NVidiaUpdates

Certification test suite must pass on a range of hardware:
https://git.launchpad.net/plainbox-provider-sru/tree/units/sru.pxu

The QA team that executed the tests will be in charge of attaching the artifacts and console output of the appropriate run to the bug. nVidia maintainers team members will not mark ‘verification-done’ until this has happened.

[Regression Potential]
In order to mitigate the regression potential, the results of the
aforementioned system level tests are attached to this bug.

Testing has completed for this 470-server driver across bionic, focal and hirsute. The LRM version of the driver was tested against the linux generic kernels currently in -proposed:

4.15.0-152-generic
5.4.0-81-generic
5.11.0-25-generic

Testing consisted of running a basic set of the cuda samples (from 11.0).

Additional testing on bionic and focal was done with the Data Center GPU Manager to exercise nvidia-fabricmanager and libnvidia-nscq-470.
