There's still a problem.

"nvidia-kernel-2.6.26-1-amd64" depends on "nvidia-kernel-common", which
contains the header "Recommends: nvidia-kernel-source | nvidia-kernel".

Apparently there is no package which "Provides: nvidia-kernel".
Therefore, "nvidia-kernel-common" sucks in an extra 96MB of stuff with
"nvidia-kernel-source", which is completely unnecessary.

The solution is to have "nvidia-kernel-2.6.26-1-amd64" "Provides:
nvidia-kernel, nvidia-kernel-173.14.09".

Either that, or change the header in "nvidia-kernel-common" to
"Recommends: nvidia-kernel-173.14.09".
