After updating nvidia-drivers from 290.10 to 295.20-r1, I cannot start X
and the log files contain this message:

(EE) NVIDIA(0): Failed to initialize the NVIDIA kernel module. Please see the
[  3482.609] (EE) NVIDIA(0):     system's kernel log for additional error messages and
[  3482.609] (EE) NVIDIA(0):     consult the NVIDIA README for details.
[  3482.609] (EE) NVIDIA(0):  *** Aborting ***
[  3482.609] 

NVRM: API mismatch: the client has the version 295.20, but
NVRM: this kernel module has the version 290.10.  Please
NVRM: make sure that this kernel module and all NVIDIA driver
NVRM: components have the same version.

What could be the problem?  I've seen no other reports of
this issue.
