It looks like nvidia-cuda-toolkit has yet to migrate [1]. Any idea why?

Thanks! I'll take a look at this tomorrow.

I'm trying to catch up on email right now; so far I get the impression
that 340.46 introduces a noticeable regression (which I can't
personally reproduce), and I'm not sure if we'll get a new upstream
release in time that fixes this. I guess one option is that we could
just go back to 340.32 (and introduce an epoch in the versioning,
urgh), but I'll leave that call up to you.

Looks like everything else maintained in the team is in good shape at
this point. Thanks! :)
