Thanks; accepted all four, and the builds have just come in.

I can release as early as tonight (19:52) but I don't know if that's a bit
of a rush. Should I hang on until tomorrow evening in case of any
late-breaking issues?

We also need to put some thought into an announcement text. Here's a draft
starting point:

This update addresses problems in four non-free packages to support nVidia
graphics cards.

The Linux kernel update included in Debian 12.5 marked two functions as
GPL-only, making them inaccessible to non-free kernel modules. As a result,
the nVidia kernel modules cannot be built via DKMS at installation time for
the updated kernel.

This issue could not be resolved in time for the release of Debian 12.5. 

The following packages have been updated to correct the problem, as well as
fixing detection of Tesla 470 compatibility:

  Package                            Fixed version
  =======                            ==============

If you use the affected packages, we recommend you upgrade to these
