Precision 5540 and Linux 4.15.0-1066-oem broken

The new kernel results in my laptop hanging at the Ubuntu boot screen.

Removing that image and reverting back to Linux 4.15.0-1065-oem gets me back to a working machine.

Same solution on XPS 13 7390

And for those unsure how to proceed:

On boot hit escape key until you get the GRUB bootloader

Select Ubuntu advanced options

Select the Linux 4.15.0-1065-oem entry and boot from that.

Google how to list your kernels and remove the problem package in question (Linux 4.15.0-1066-oem)

Hopefully Dell will address this with an updated kernel at some point.
