I've just read regular @world build log and found this:

 * Messages for package x11-drivers/nvidia-drivers-396.18-r1:

I'm very surprised because I have GTX 1080 GPU:

# lspci | fgrep VGA
42:00.0 VGA compatible controller: NVIDIA Corporation GP104 [GeForce GTX 1080] (rev a1)
Is this some kind of maintainer's mistake or does NVIDIA really messed up with drivers again?

Kind regards,
Alexey Eschenko
