h264_nvenc Cannot init CUDA

Summary of the bug:

In the past a command utilising NVENC worked (as did OBS). Now I always get "Cannot init CUDA". I'm on a Gentoo machine and I've made sure to rebuild everything that uses ffmpeg. I have a GeForce? 980 GTX card (Maxwell).

I have Nvidia drivers version 410.57.

I have minimally debugged this and found that it's from line ~558 in nvenc.c. The return value from cuInit() is CUDA_ERROR_UNKNOWN. Unfortunately I have not seen any more information on how to debug this.

$ qlist nvidia-drivers | fgrep encode

How to reproduce:
