Bug#807579: [future CUDA 8.0] may come together with nvidia driver 361.X

Hello guys,

CUDA 8.0 support can be seen in the release note of 361.X. for example:

that means CUDA 8.0 will come soon.
Debian's latest nvidia driver pending driver is 355.X
pending in the NEW queue. 

When will Debian switch its default compiler to 6.0?

Assume that cuda 8.0 works with gcc-6,
if we have chance to sync the cuda 8.0 upload and
gcc-6 transition, we can avoid breaking some packages.
I've really had bad experience packaging cuda software
when GCC is transitioning to 5, everything is not working.
I hope we can eliminate this nightmare for other devs.

I'll test GCC-6 compatibility with CUDA 8.0 when it comes,
and inform you all in a new bug.

Thanks. :-)
