Hence, starting from this release detection of the GDK is not necessary anymore which greatly simplifies things and makes NVML more widely available. Hence, we should consider extending our FindNVML for a future r2016.x release.

This is a bug, because a user with CUDA 8 should not be required to install the separate GDK, because from CUDA 8 it is not distributed separately. This was probably not clear when the issue was opened.
For a bug fix, setting a target version when accepting makes sense even if not planning/able to work on it right now. There's always one open for branches that are being maintained, and bumping a handful of outstanding known issues to the next bug fix release is reasonable.
Otherwise, leaving a blank target and no affected version gives us no good way to find it in the large number of open issues. (Those issues also include a lot of "wish list" tasks that look the same to the database.)
