It did not got lost, I was told that this is no longer necessary.

May I ask who told you this?

Between, this hack did only work for local accounts, never for NIS, LDAP,
Samba or anything else. Means it did not even work in our SUSE network.

Yes, it only works for local users (unless you add the NIS users to the video
group manually). It has been a compromise between using

/etc/modprobe.de/50-nvidia.conf
options nvidia NVreg_DeviceFileUID=0 NVreg_DeviceFileGID=33
NVreg_DeviceFileMode=0660

(restricts permissions to NVIDIA's devices to members of video group)

and having it working at least with the default user.
