I sync'd it into Ubuntu as soon as it cleared NEW, and have been testing 
since then.  As usual, the Ubuntu drivers require modification [1], so I 
built them locally for now.

Pycuda 2017.1.1-1 built without modification, however I needed to 
uninstall cython and cython3 to avoid a FTBFS.  To run the examples, I 
needed to install g++-6.  I also think I need a new graphics card, as my 
one at work complains that value 'sm_21' is not defined for option 

I also was able to build eztrace-contrib, hwloc-contrib and 
starpu-contrib, but haven't done any testing of them.
