If the nvidiafb module is active, optirun / primusrun will error out.

I suppose this wasn't noticed so far, because the official kernel doesn't ship that module.

This package contains a file – provided by us, not upstream – to blacklist nivida modules.

I propose adding nvidiafb to bumblebee.conf, so others won't run into the same problem.

Additional info:
* bumblebee package version: 3.2.1-21
