Please note that

a) kmod is not the atrpms method of packaging kernel modules, kmdls is
b) kmdls involve no patching at all, the kmdl packages are just
   add-ons that you can drop into your running kernel.

In fact the end result of kmdls and dkms is not different, both offer
you an additional (set of) kernel module(s).
