I saw no problems on 8 of 9 machines, but the last one had a problem
because it used NVIDIA drivers (387); DKMS reported:

FATAL: modpost: GPL-incompatible module nvidia-drm.ko uses GPL-only
symbol 'ex_handler_refcount'
recipe for target '__modpost' failed
make[3]: *** [__modpost] Error 1

The drivers built fine after rebuilding Linux with [PATCH]
locking/refcounts: Do not force refcount_t usage as GPL-only export

which appears to be in Linus' tree as b562c171cf011d297059bd0265742eb5fab0ad2f
