> The current Nvidia GPU isolator has a dependence on `libnvidia-ml`, and as such, pulls
a hard dependence on this library into `libmesos`. The consequence of this is that any process
that relies on `libmesos` has to have `libnvidia-ml` available as well, even on machines where
no GPUs are available.  Since this library is not easily installable through standard package
managers, having such a hard dependence can be burdensome.
> This ticket proposes to pull in `libnvidia-ml` as a run-time dependence instead of a
link-time dependence. As such, only machines that actually have GPUs installed and would like
to rely on this library need to have it installed.
