Bug#886852: NVidia driver : upgrade to version 384.111

Package: nvidia-driver
Version: 375.82-1~deb9u1
Severity: critical


NVidia upgraded their blob to version 384.111 in order to fix Spectre /
Meltdown vulnerability. It turns out that the 375.xx branch is no longer
supported, so we cannot expect getting driver patches for the current
stretch drivers.

More details on this bulletin :

What I suggest is first to put the 384.111 driver in BPO, and then once
we've checked it is good enough put it in the next p-u so that users are no
longer vulnerable.

What do you think of it ?
