Check current git. I've moved SourceModule and its related infrastructure to
pycuda.compiler. Now you can get the cubin that results from compilation by
calling pycuda.compiler.compile with the same arguments as SourceModule. You
can then do with it whatever you want. There's also
pycuda.compiler.compile_plain() that skips a bunch of niceties that compile()
has, such as caching, compute model detection, etc.
PS: Don't worry, everybody else. SourceModule in pycuda.driver still exists--
it will print a (silenceable) deprecation warning once per Python interpreter
