  Ubuntu stuck in loop at boot after upgrade from 17.10 to 18.04

Bug description:
  * I did a do-release-upgrade -d
  * After the upgrade was done, I rebooted


  My computer was stuck in a boot loop, showing alternatively a black
  screen, a text log and a set of random pixels.

  Here is a GIF of the loop: https://imgur.com/zGGTzma

  As I had to make my computer work again I had to reinstal Ubuntu from
  a 18.04 live USB stick, so I'm not sure if I could get information
  from the previous installation. Reinstalling made my computer work
  fine with 18.04. I just need to reinstall all my applications.

  I had an external Mesa installation on 17.10 from Padoka Stable PPA.
  May it be related? At the moment, Mesa version from Padoka Stable is
  18.0.0~*~padoka0, whereas after a 18.04 reinstall it is 18.0.0-rc5

  Note: I tried to boot in safe mode with graphics, but it does not start, I 
get this error in the console:
  /usr/share/xdiagnose/failsafeXinit: line 194 : [: == : unary operator expected
