I have been working on packaging nvidia-cuda-toolkit 6.0.  The current 
version can be found in my Ubuntu PPA [1].
Upgrading from 5.5 to 6.0 does not the solve the problem with gcc 4.9, 
however the fix is trivial, see bug #757961.

I plan to upload fixes for #757961 and #755513 for 5.5 as soon as 
#755513 is fixed in ocl-icd.
Thereafter I'll upload 6.0 to experimental and pycuda and starpu-contrib 
can be transitioned.
