This happened to me on 2 installations so far (the only 2 I've done) on
updating the kernel to 4.17.10-1. It looks like the problem is that the
/boot partition was not mounted, as it usually is, during the update
This caused the previously installed kernel to load, and the modules to fail
to load due to version mismatch.
I fixed it by booting to live media, mounting the /boot and / partitions
appropriately and doing arch-chroot to / to install the cached 4.17.10 image
with pacman -U
For now I've also put the /boot partition in my fstab, even though iirc
the wiki recommends against this.
