> nouveau is not blacklisted ... the kernel module would probably get loaded by a cuda application
#580894 (the original reason for the blacklist) has conflicting reports
of what would happen next: some report nvidia.ko gets control (=blank
screen if the graphics side isn't installed), some that nouveau.ko does.
It also may have changed since, and isn't testable in a chroot.

I agree that that's the ideal solution in the long term but too much of
a change for jessie.
