Reading the remaining bugs w.r.t. the provides again, I'm considering
dropping all the remaining Provides of libglvnd package names and adding
Breaks: lib*-glvnd-nvidia to nvidia-driver-libs (and maybe adding
versioned Depends/Recommends on the corresponding libglvnd packages.
That should hopefully result in an upgrade path switching to
src:libglvnd only for regular driver installations.

I won't drop the packages right now, since we still need them for
stretch and I want to keep the diff needed for stretch minimal.

The lib*-glvnd-nvidia packages will be still installable in sid/testing,
just not along such things like X, mesa, or the nvidia driver.
