H264_cuvid Decoding Causes NVRM XID 31

Decoding h264 stream using h264_cuvid causes a NVRM XID 31 (NVidia driver error). indicates XID 31 is a "GPU memory page fault", and can be either the Driver or the Application's issue.

Replicating is as simple as:
ffmpeg -c:v h264_cuvid -i ./bbb_sunflower_1080p_30fps_stereo_abl.mp4 ./test.mp4

After the error, ffmpeg hangs (waiting on IO), and seemingly anything else querying the NVidia driver also hangs (e.g. nvidia-smi run at the same time will hang). Killing ffmpeg (goes zombie still waiting on IO), and waiting a few minutes eventually unfreezes and allows normal use of the NVidia drivers again.

Not sure if this is ffmpeg or the NVidia drivers, but I figured I'd post here first ;).

I originally encountered this on a system with a Tesla P40 and a 1080TI, and have also replicated it on another system with only a 1080TI (same software stack on both).

This is using:
ffmpeg 3.3.5
linux 4.4.87-gentoo-r2-rev1.16
nvidia-drivers 384.90
nvidia-cuda-cudnn 9.0-r1
nvidia-cuda-sdk 9.0.176
nvidia-cuda-toolkit 9.0.176
nvidia-video-sdk 6.0.1

I've submitted a driver bug report to NVidia via their form (with a link here).
