Re: Adding CudaBuffer to pyarrow

hi Pearu,

Sounds good to me; I had wanted to do it already but got caught up
working on other things. You'll probably want to create
libarrow_gpu.pxd since this is an optional library. Otherwise it
should be reasonably straightforward.

some relevant issues

- https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/ARROW-1424
- https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/ARROW-2512

If we wanted to ship Python wheels and conda packages with CUDA
support built in, what would we have to do (currently these binaries
are produced in Circle CI, Travis CI, and Appveyor)?
