are you sure it has arrived with _some_ gcc version already. publications indicate its very experimental still and i can not see any of the typical switches beeing honored by the gcc versions on my machine. (and i was able to switch them forth and back using "update- alternatives") needless to say that even after a few attempts a call to "modinfo" does not at all report the "retpoline" option for the dkms built nvidia kernel modules (using -384 on top of 4.4.0-116).
