We need to push 4 packages together to stable-updates:

According to my list there's just nvidia-graphics-drivers-tesla missing
now; does that match yours?

Seems installable in sid now, so just uploaded to PU. These 4 should be
ready for stable-updates.

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?

Tomorrow is probably better.

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.

three non-free driver packages ?

The Linux kernel update included in Debian 12.5 marked two functions as
GPL-only, making them inaccessible to non-free kernel modules.
not correct ...

The Linux kernel update in Debian 12.5 changed an inlined function to call two GPL-only symbols, making that function 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.

(And perhaps something along this:)

Additionally src:nvidia-graphics-drivers and src:nvidia-settings have been enabled to build for ppc64el, in order to turn src:nvidia-graphics-drivers-tesla into transitional packages to ease future updates.

The following packages have been updated to correct the problem.

, as well as
fixing detection of Tesla 470 compatibility:
Drop, that was a regression introduced in -6 and -6~deb12u1, it only existed for a few days.

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

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