The danger you cite has never manifested for me. If the module fails to build,
generally, the system just boots using the Linux nv driver - I've never
experienced the event you describe.
Regarding your question, it seems like even should that be possible, you would
end up doing more work than just putting up with a couple of days delay till
the new Livna modules are released - but, your concerns/needs may be
different than mine
