CUDA 7.5 does not work with GCC 6 and as someone reported the
CUDA 8 beta doesn't either.
This time it's not sufficient to patch a compiler version check in some
header file, it simply doesn't work afterwards.

In the worst case, stretch will have to live without a CUDA toolkit (in
non-free, maybe we can provide it later via backports). That will affect
a few packages:

# Broken Build-Depends:
eztrace-contrib/contrib: libcupti-dev
hwloc-contrib/contrib: nvidia-cuda-dev
pycuda/contrib: nvidia-cuda-toolkit
starpu-contrib/contrib: nvidia-cuda-toolkit

It would be great if gcc-5 could stay in sid until it is no longer needed.
