Installing the latest 4.4.0-22 kernel ends with that error logged into dkmsbuildlog

the latest error logged is:

/var/lib/dkms/nvidia-361/361.42/build/nvidia/nv-frontend.c:1:0: error: code model kernel does not support PIC mode

Looks like it is related to the latest changes updates: gcc-6/gcc-5 5.3.1-16ubuntu2 (some packages built with gcc-6; gcc-5 disabled for the packages built with gg-6)
Maybe some alternatives has not been updated to take care of these changes, as asked some time ago:

This has been firstly reported against a nvidia crash:
