When i tried run
primusrun blender
cuda fails to initialize, and complains uvm module not loaded

After searching for solution, i found this command makes cuda-acceleraed
applications work

modprobe --force-modversion nvidia-uvm

But after quiting the application, bumblebee fails to unload both nvidia and
nvidia-uvm module,

There is a fix upstream , which can also help to resolve this
