After changed default compiler to GCC5, many cuda-related packages
get FTBFS because cuda << 7.5 can't work well with GCC5.
The CUDA 7.0 present in experimental is still not working with GCC5,
even applied the gcc compatibility hack that ArchLinux applied
I'm working on packaging CUDA 7.5, and my local test shows that
CUDA 7.5 works with GCC-5.3.1 from Sid, with the the same hack as 
My package debian-science/caffe finally gets rid of FTBFS,
it passed the build without any nvcc/gcc complain.
I also noticed that there are many packages influenced by
CUDA's failure working with GCC5, hence cc'ing -devel.
My work is still in process, and I'll attach patches in the following
mails to this bug.
