OK, I'm finished for now.

libvdpau and nvidia-kernel-drivers will have to go through NEW because
of new packages.

nvidia-kernel-common is prepared, too, but I didn't have time to test
the blacklist rule. The updated config file renaming code was tested and
works properly (it would probably break if you have modified
configuration files with *both* old names - which one should be kept?).

I didn't have time to update nvidia-kernel-modules, but that's not so
important now that we have the dkms package.

Eventually libvdpau1 should be changed to Conflicts/Replaces:
nvidia-libvdpau1 (<< 195.36.24-2) and so on ?
And the kernel modules could be bumped to
nvidia-kernel-common (>= 20100520)
