As an aside, thank you for posting this fix. Although my drivers were
not broken, I did have a problem where xorg would not start correctly
with the 4.16 kernel and nvidia drivers 390.48 (both from Stretch
backports). That GRUB command seemed to resolve it my issue.
I have 304xx working fine dkms with 4.16. of course these are now deprecated. If only nouveau would work. I prefer it..
