Description: Starting with xserver 1.16, the server will honor "OutputClass" configuration file in /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d. That means that you should be able to ship /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/nvidia-drm-outputclass.conf with the following contents as part of the nvidia-utils package:

Section "OutputClass"
Identifier "nvidia"
MatchDriver "nvidia-drm"
Driver "nvidia"

Then, if the nvidia kernel module is loaded at boot (which it is when udev is triggered if an NVIDIA PCI device is found), then X will automatically configure the nvidia driver. Once that's done, you can drop autoconfig-nvidia.patch from the xserver package.
This task depends upon
