A backported upstream 4.18.5 kernel for Stretch

I also removed the 4.17.7 kernel backport from that repo, since it's now made it into stretch-backports. Ndiswrapper-dkms, broadcom-sta-dkms, virtualbox-dkms, and nvidia-kernel-dkms from stretch-backports all successfully build with this new kernel. Any firmware packages and intel-microcode should also be updated to the backports version.

If you're happy with your present kernel, there is little reason to upgrade unless you discover the new kernel has better power management, wi-fi drivers, or allows your machine to suspend or hibernate more successfully. I do know that this kernel does report all hatches are battened down when I run the backports spectre-meltdown-checker script.
The MX Linux repositories: Backports galore! If we don't have something, just ask and we'll try--we like challenges. New packages: Foliate 1.5.3, Minitube 3.1, wine-staging 4.12, Virtual Box 5.2.32 & 6.0.10, Pale Moon 28.6.1, Waterfox 56.2.12
