I cannot reproduce the problem here. (Tried the 384.111 driver from
stretch-backports, using both ocl-icl-libopencl1 and nvidia-libopencl1.
Only possible difference is that I'm running a rather old non-distro
kernel for unrelated reasons.)
But it should be easy for you to test the module loading mechanism,
assuming you don't have X running using the nvidia driver:
$ sudo modprobe -r nvidia # unload all nvidia modules
$ lsmod | grep nvidia # expect no output
$ nvidia-modprobe -u # NVIDIA's setuid root helper
$ lsmod | grep nvidia # expect nvidia and nvidia-uvm
If that doesn't work for you, the setuid helper nvidia-modprobe is not
working properly on your system
$ ls -la /usr/bin/nvidia-modprobe
-rwsr-xr-x 1 root root ...
