[pkg-nvidia-devel] some patches for nvidia-graphics-drivers

Hello everybody,

The past days I have prepared two patches for nvidia-graphics-drivers,
today I see that SVN has changed significally, 
say me what you think about these patches, and therefore I will adapt to the 
current trunk,

The first is geared to automatically download the original file from the Nvidia 
ftp site, the first time that is compiled.
also because the kernel-source packages depend on the architecture, it 
includes only the corresponding module.
This reduces the size of the source package, the work to compile and deploy 
it, and also the size of the kernel-source packages,

The second patch changes the working directory "NVIDIA-Linux" by "debian/tmp", 
so the "Install" instructions.should not refer to any directory. But instead 
the instructions "docs, changelogs and examples" continue needing the full 
path to the files.
