Kernel version 4.16 is out, and brief details of changes since -rc7 are here: http://lkml.iu.edu/hypermail/linux/kernel/1804.0/00174.html
$ uname -a Linux rglx 4.16.0 #1 SMP Sun Apr 1 15:20:00 PDT 2018 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
This release is OK with VMware 14.1.1, and with NVIDIA 384.130/390.48 with the swiotlb-removing patch.. ( see http://rglinuxtech.com/?p=2227 ).
Hopefully NVIDIA will get round to releasing a 4.16-compatible version, soon..
