This really ought to be fixed, as these cards have become very common
and users are complaining (see #839139).  The second of the attached
patches creates a new firmware-nvidia-graphics package with the firmware
files for Maxwell and Pascal chips.  While I still don't have the
hardware to test the package, at least update-initramfs no longer warns
about missing firmware when nouveau is included in
/etc/initramfs-tools/modules.

The new package currently is slightly under 60 kilobytes, and it would
certainly also be possible to put the files into the
firmware-misc-nonfree catch-all package (the Tegra firmware is already
there).  However, more NVidia firmware is probably going to be released
in the future, so a separate package makes sense to me.

In any case, the first of the two attached patches fixes a problem in
debian/rules.real where 'ln' would fail because a target directory does
not exist.

Thanks for consideration,
Sven

Subject: [PATCH 1/2] Ensure that target directory for symbolic links exists

If a directory contains only symlinks and no regular files, as in the
case of nvidia/gm204/acr/, installing the symlink would fail:

ln -s ../../gm200/acr/ucode_unload.bin debian/firmware-nvidia-graphics/lib/firmware/nvidia/gm204/acr/ucode_unload.bin
ln: failed to create symbolic link 'debian/firmware-nvidia-graphics/lib/firmware/nvidia/gm204/acr/ucode_unload.bin': No such file or directory
debian/rules.real:13: recipe for target 'install' failed
