And what happens with the latest kernel 4.20.2-2? Same problem?

With out-of-kernel drivers, there are always problems with kernel API changes. The first error in your log is

tmp/selfgz4325/NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-390.87/kernel/nvidia/os-interface.c:1700:5: error: unknown type name ˜ipmi_user_t™
ipmi_user_t p_user; // ptr to ipmi_msghandler user structure

The change that is causing that problem is "Change ipmi_user_t to struct ipmi_user *"

You need to prepare a patch following the nVidia instructions that will change that line to

struct ipmi_user *p_user; // ptr to ipmi_msghandler user structure
