Bug#795610: Linux kernel backport 4.1 breaks NVidia drivers

Do you have any news regarding this bug ? The issue is quite blocking for anyone using backports (i.e. most of the desktop users). Of course they can still revert back to older 3.16 kernel except if they're using newer CPU like Broadwell or Skylake. But in that case they may miss some interesting updates from backports.
Anyway thanks to your commitment to bring us such a nice distro as Debian (really, I love it !)

Actually, I noticed just now that Vincent already back-ported the fixes
on 304xx in Stretch and Sid, so it just needs to be rebuilt and

Vincent, do you think 304xx could be pushed to backports already?

Kind regards,
