Intel Media SDK on Ubuntu?

Is it possible to run the Intel Media SDK on Ubuntu? I'm trying to follow the instructions here:

I'm unable to build the 4.14.16 kernel, so my kernel is listed as 4.10.0-42-generic. With the 4.10.0-42-generic kernel, libva fails to work. The install fails with the error:
libva info: va_getDriverName() returns -1

That seems to mean that the driver isn't working. So is that the correct way to build the Intel Media SDK? And if not, is there a preferable way to get a 4k encoder to work in realtime?
