Issue 310: Automatic nVidia model names

Reported by bltz, Dec 16, 2012

The attached patch improves the handling of displayed names for 
NVIDIA cards. It makes the executable about 10% smaller and should 
put an end on frequent updates just to add another card. The 
nvidia_cards array is split into three: nvidia_card_vendors, 
nvidia_card_generic and nvidia_card_exceptions. Exceptions now only 
contain names which cannot be guessed and the code is now 
automatically generates most of what was there by concatenating the 
vendor and generic name. Thus it needs to be updated less frequently 
and does not grow endlessly.
