Bug description:
  SRU Request:

  A recent security update of the nvidia driver provided new EGL libraries and 
new kernel modules (such as nvidia-modeset and nvidia-drm), which are not 
handled by the current gpu-manager (ubuntu-drivers-common) and nvidia-prime in 
14.04. This problem is fixed in Xenial or newer.

  ubuntu-drivers-common also does not distinguish between the different
  LTS stacks, and this is a major problem on Intel+Nvidia hybrid
  systems, as anything running stacks older than 14.04.5 will require
  using the intel driver with SNA acceleration, whereas the rest should
  use the modesetting driver. Boot parameters can also be passed to use
  other driver combinations (for unsupported use cases).

  [Test Case]
  1) Enable the trusty-proposed repository, and install the 
ubuntu-drivers-common and the nvidia-prime packages.

  2) Install the nvidia driver.

  3) Restart the system and see if it boots correctly. If unsure, please
  attach your /var/log/gpu-manager.log and /var/log/Xorg.0.log

  [Regression Potential]
  Low, the above mentioned changes are already in Yakkety (and most of them 
have been in Xenial since its release).
