Updated patches for CUDA 7.5, this is dch:

nvidia-cuda-toolkit (7.5.18-1) UNRELEASED; urgency=medium

  * New upstream release 7.5 (Sept 2015). (Closes: #807579)
  * SOVERSION bump: 7.0 => 7.5, rename all library packages and
    bump alternative virtual B-D to libcuda-7.5-1 .
  * Update *.symbols.in and *.manpages.in templates.
  * Override more lintian warning.
  * Append myself to Uploaders.
  * d/rules: Add a hack enabling working with GCC-4.9 and above.
  * Add python3 to B-D, and add python3 scripts to fix the lintian
    warning "manpage-section-mismatch" at debian/bin/ . 
  * [temporarily] disabled all patches.
  * [todo] Add ppc64el support, which is available since 7.5.

  * -----------------------------------------------------------

  * [todo] update rules.defs for driver version, and download links

  * [info] upstream release note says there is a new executable
    named "gwiz", but actually it's only for windows.
    Apart from that blob, I find nothing new in realease note.
  * [info] [ppc64el] the ppc64el package is a deb package,
    which contains a bunch of little debs, i.e. a local repo
    to be installed at /var/cuda-xxx. Then, the package adds
    a new apt repo pointing to /var/cuda-xxx.
    Should we use
    $ dpkg -X cuda-ppc64el.deb tmp
    $ find tmp -type f -name '*.deb' -exec dpkg -X {} TARGET_DIR +
    to extract them? however this will consume more work time
    for us.
