Bug#808883: [CUDA] actually CUDA is available for ppc64el since 7.0, should we prepare the 7.0.28-2 ?

Package: nvidia-cuda-toolkit
Version: 7.0.28-1
Severity: important


To my surprise the CUDA 7.0 upload has missed the ppc64el architecture.

See LINUX POWER8 section at:
there is indeed ppc64el package present:

That deb package is of size ~600MB.

So, should we prepare the 7.0.28-2 with support for ppc64el arch ?
This BUG blocks CUDA 7.5.
