Kernel 4.18-rc2 has been released, and brief details of changes from -rc1 are here: http://lkml.iu.edu/hypermail/linux/kernel/1806.3/00112.html
This includes the cmdline fix, which enables the VMware runtimes to execute correctly. The VMware 14.1.2 vmmon patch is still required (see http://rglinuxtech.com/?p=2322 )
NVIDIA 390.67 compiles OK, with the
nvidia-drm-drv.c patch (see http://rglinuxtech.com/?p=2315 )
