ISTR you start with USE="-*". When you built kmod, was it with the tools flag enabled? The virtual requires it, so probably you did, but I thought it was worth asking. I went with kmod because of what the masking comment for module-init-tools said, and I haven't noticed any trouble. I've got nvidia-drivers-310.32. I know, WFM doesn't help much. Sorry, and good luck!
