You need to update "/etc/default/grub" and add parameter to boot with. In this 
file, you need to edit the line starting with GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX and append 
option: "slab_common.usercopy_fallback=y". This workaround was suggested by 
nvidia maintainer. Don't forget to run "update-grub" after.

This workaround works fine for me. Currently, I'm using nvidia-driver 
(390.67-1) and Linux (4.16.0-2-amd64).
