Petition: extend support for 384.XX drivers (given an idle power consumption regression in new drivers)

As almost everyone is aware, 390.xx and later drivers have substantially increased idle power consumption on all supported NVIDIA GPUs even with the suggested workaround (

Option "UseNvKmsCompositionPipeline" "Off"

) - we are talking about ~20% more watts.

Could NVIDIA be so kind, as to extend the support for the last working drivers say for a year or two, given that you are reluctant to fully fix this regression?

380.xx is a perfect driver, 390.xx is a disaster
