attached patch does a little bit formatting cleanup, adds a missing
changelog entry and closes another dkms related bug.

Some more thoughts:

For all packages that have a 'Suggests: n-k-source', should this become
'n-k-source | n-k-dkms' or 'n-k-dkms | n-k-source' eventually (with
appropriate versioning of course)? If n-k-dkms is installed (which will
probably be the case on most installations with nvidia hardware at some
point in the future), there is no more need for suggesting n-k-source.

The tarball should be checked into the svn repository (there is a
/tarballs/ directory), it will only be generatable as long as no new
upstream was released.

So far the package builds on amd64. I'll upgrade the driver on my
notebook later today, too.

You might want to take a look at
  build a 32-bit libvdpau.so.1 on amd64
so that we could convert the nvidia-libvdpau1{,-ia32} to transitional
packages - there is no need to have a free and a non-free variant of the
vdpau wrapper available.
