This is pretty much the reality of using any out-of-tree kernel
module, and especially the case for a proprietary module like the
nvidia drivers.  They're often not compatible across kernel 4.x
version changes, and upstream projects often do not target mainline in
their official releases.

IMO you're better off still sticking to longterm, such as 4.14.
Otherwise you're still dealing with stable dropping support for your
version but the out-of-kernel module takes a week to support the new
version.  There isn't any overlap in linux stable support release
across versions - they stop one and start the next.  Only the longterm
releases get overlapping support windows.
