Kernel 4.19-rc2 is out, and details of changes from -rc1 are here: http://lkml.iu.edu/hypermail/linux/kernel/1809.0/00713.html
As with -rc1, the latest VMware (14.1.3) compiles/loads OK, and the latest NVIDIA (396.54 and 390.87) with the patch mentioned in a previous article ( http://rglinuxtech.com/?p=2391 ) compiles and loads OK. The patch is applicable to both versions..
