I expect every binary-only module to break when I upgrade my kernel.

Because of that .rpm have that "release:" number, which is now
"274", as you posted. If they've tested only with "-74" they need
to retest with "-274".
Have you tried to reinstall the nividia-kernel package and ran
"depmod" afterwards. If the interface and compile options were the
same even the nvidia module should load.
Another alternative is the use of the nvidia-kernel.src.rpm to build
the kernel module on your machine. But you need additional software
for that, which I would not install on a gaming machine.
