Without any kind of logs, this ticket is useless.

The problem arose when I tried to access /var/lib/dkms/nvidia/396.45/build/make.log; there isn't anything there, so this is the only relevant log I can get my hands on.

I had the same issue and found the make.log. The problem for me at least was that kernel 4.17.12.a-1-hardened was built with GCC 8.1.1 and the system had version 8.2 automatically installed by pacman.

After downgrading gcc and gcc-libs to version 8.1.1+20180531-1 and successfully rebuilding the nvidia-dkms, I no longer have got the problematic make.log. Sorry.

This bug will probably disappear when a new hardened kernel release is made with the newer 8.2 gcc. Is there some kind of gcc release check list that would prompt for stabilizing new kernel packages at the same time?
