upstream works a lot on GPU support these days. An update of the Ubuntu
packages would indeed help a lot. I suggest you talk to Daniel directly
about helping him with those not-yet-official BOINC packages. The PPA
is at https://launchpad.net/~pkg-boinc/+archive/ppa and offers the
last version officially announced as stable, if I am not erroneous.
That we have the interim versions for Debian is mostly because
they were needed for the Einstein at home's own cluster, which I
personally find very rewarding. I just wished they would run the
popularity-contest on those machines :o) .

But backporting those fixes is either considered important by upstream
(and then you get it through the PPA) or the Debian/Ubuntu packages
should not care either. Chat to Daniel.
