Package.mask gentoo-sources and debian-sources > the version installed to prevent update.
If emerge wants to remove a kernel source against your will then add it including version to /var/lib/portage/world.
This sys-kernel/gentoo-sources:4.4.1 in world keeps gentoo-sources-4.4.1 on my system, otherwise "emerge -a --depclean" wants to remove it.
I use emerge -avuDN world and have EMERGE_DEFAULT_OPTS="--with-bdeps=y" in /etc/portage/make.conf
Sync and update world no less than once a week avoids Blockers and other update problems.
If you don't want debian-sources to auto-run genkernel after merge add -binary to USE= in /etc/portage/make.conf
Nvidia is an out-of-tree external module, boot into the kernel your building it for and verify /usr/src/linux is symlinked to the same kernel sources before you compile/merge.
If eselect opengl list is not set for nvidia then nvidia driver won't work.
