I don't think it can be done.

The reason is similar to why you need kernel headers that *exactly* match 
the (distro) kernel you are using to compile out of tree modules.

Loads of kernel configuration choices affect the internal ABI of the kernel 
for modules. And even if you got the configuration right you could be 
thrown off by a single patch they included in their kernel.
