The ELRepo drivers are just the drivers, not the SDK.  That said, my
experience is they're packaged much better than the ones nVidia releases as
part of the CUDA repo.

The approach I've gone with is to use ELRepo for the drivers, and then use
environment modules to provide the CUDA SDK to users.  That for me offers
little downsides.  You easily get to provide multiple releases of the SDK for
users, and you get to use the best packaged drivers.
