I'm playing catch-up after a week in the UK for my corporate overlord.
As soon as I recover from jet lag (getting too damn old for 10+ hr
flights), I'll update my VMs and have a look.

Nvidia also has a newer version as well that fixes kernel compile issues:

Version: 	410.93
Release Date: 	2019.1.3

This long-lived-branch now includes a number of kernel compile fixes
from the short-lived-branch.

The legacy versions my be another issue.  I have older NVidia GPUs, but
nothing to stick them into to test.  At this point, if you need
nvidia-legacy you must NOT upgrade your kernel.
