Google took me to
https://packages.ubuntu.com/bionic/amd64/nvidia-cuda-dev/filelist which
includes dynlink_cuda.h at least.

https://packages.ubuntu.com/bionic/nvidia-cuda-dev might also be of
interest, I don't know which Ubuntu is relevant here, but e.g. I can
see that dynlink_cuda.h is not listed in 
https://packages.ubuntu.com/trusty/amd64/nvidia-cuda-dev/filelist so at
least that one must be too old.
