No need to worry in this regard. The voiced concerns in the original thread do have no factual grounds. If you look into the patch you will see all the modifications are wrapped in preprocessor macros to discriminate between kernel versions as it is already the case for API changes in previous kernels.

The way the evdi kernel module works: For every installed kernel version, DKMS compiles and installs a kernel module against the correct kernel headers.

You can switch between installed kernels and its respective kernel modules in your bootloader menu.
