When I'm using GNOME on Xorg and try to restart or shutdown the computer, the entire system freezes and I have to do force shutdown by holding the power button on my laptop. This has started happening yesterday and it happens every time now. These are all the packages/updates that were installed in the period since I started having this issue. The issue does not appear with GNOME (on Wayland).

Also, in both cases (Wayland and Xorg), Problem Reporting throws 5 very similar issues on each startup, as shown in the following picture: https://imgur.com/a/Q5kPl. I've uploaded the full details (the entire data directory) for one of them to Google Drive and they can be accessed here: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1ofpq0ncMz9XiLF8BRZ1f2vy7CiGv1X. But it says that I cannot report them because the kernel has been "tainted", even though right now (in a Wayland session), running dmesg | grep -i taint gives nothing, and running cat /proc/sys/kernel/tainted returns 0.

After first log in to a Xorg session, cat /proc/sys/kernel/tainted returns 512, and dmesg | grep -i taint returns this:

What GPU are you using? If you boot with older kernel (4.14.xx), I guess, it doesn't happen?
