After applying routine patches to RedHat 7 workstation with a Quadro FX 3700 GPU and rebooting the screen was blank and the Xorg.0.log has EE errors. Attempting to re-install NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-340.107.run failed with “ERROR: Unable to build the NVIDIA kernel module”. The /var/log/nvidia-installer.log shows an error occurring with nv-drm.o

When rebooted to the previous kernel the 340.107 driver works. Replacing the GPU with a Quadro 4000/390.129 driver works. Reverting to Quadro FX 3700 GPU/340.107 errors. So it appears the issue is with the NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-340.107.run driver and the latest patches.
Anyone have a similar issue and a workaround? If not where do we start?
