37. By Alberto Milone

* debian/nvidia-173.prerm{.in}:
  - Call dpkg-trigger with --by-package=$PACKAGE_NAME.
* Add support for blacklisting card ids from GRUB gfxpayload=keep:
  - In Natty gfxpayload=keep is set by default so as to provide a framebuffer
    early in the boot process. Some cards don't play nicely with it, therefore
    we need to blacklist them in a file. The format is a sequence of lines of
    the following form:
      vVENDORdDEVICEsvSUBVENDORsdSUBDEVICEbcBASECLASSscSUBCLASS
    Blacklist lines are regex-matched against a corresponding PCI ID string.
    In practice this means that you can replace any part of the ID string
    with .* to match anything.

36. By Martin Pitt

* Move from separate modalias file package to using a package header:
  - debian/control.in, debian/rules: Drop -modaliases package.
  - debian/control.in: Add XB-Modaliases header and dh-modaliases build
    dependency.
  - debian/rules: Build the modalias list to
    debian/nvidia-173.modaliases, where dh_modaliases picks it up, and
    invoke dh_modaliases.
  - debian/control.in: Add Conflicts:/Replaces: to nvidia-173-modaliases, so
    that the obsolete modaliases package gets cleaned up on upgrade.

35. By Alberto Milone

* debian/dkms/patches/nvidia-2.6.36-ioctl.patch:
