Do you have a 7265? As I do not (Edit: I too have mistaken one of the posters for the OP).
By the way, @OddTod, after a bit of research, I had found someone posting similar post on the Intel forums.
That person's 7265 came with his laptop, made by Huawei (the model was not posted), and the Intel representative said that their 7265 may have had a customized OEM firmware, perhaps this is a similar situation?
I can say that I had pulled my QCA9377 from a Dell Vostro 3568, so that may have been the reason why it cannot find any networks on kernel 4.9-LTS.

Would be surprised if it get fixed this way, but I could already add this non-less to my open diff regarding updating lightdm D4299 @sunnyflunk.
What's so weird is that the intel_backlight takes sometimes a lot of time to start the other time it's extremely fast, @bwat47 did you do a reboot or a complete shutdown and new start for testing the changes?

Can you try to edit lightdm.service to

[Unit]
Description=Display Manager
Conflicts=xdm.service gdm.service kdm.service lxdm.service slim.service
After=systemd-backlight@.service
[Service]
ExecStart=/usr/sbin/lightdm
Restart=always
IgnoreSIGPIPE=no
BusName=org.freedesktop.DisplayManager
[Install]
Alias=displaymanager.service
WantedBy=graphical.target

this should force lightdm.service starter after systemd-backlight is started

1.112s systemd-backlight@backlight:intel_backlight.service, shoudn't this start earlier? does lightdm start after it with the sleep function?

bwat47 added a comment to T5641: black screen after every boot ,but works perfectly after forced restart.

I think this could be solved with an

After=${command}

instead of putting the lightdm.service to sleep, the question is just which one is needed.
Would be interesting to see the systemd-analyze blame output without the sleep to see if there is an issue with the booting order on your notebooks

seems like this happens on nearly every boot for me now, in some cases I have to try like 5 times in a row to boot without getting stuck on a black screen. I'm at a loss as to what this could be... no other distro has ever given me this problem (including other distros using kernel 4.18).

@Peter-Kot, in my case, I cannot ctrl-alt-f[0-9] into any virtual console when I get a black screen, which prevents me from running "uname -r" and comparing that to the eopkg-installed version. As far as running out of space on the boot partition, I allocated ~500MB to the ESP when I first installed Solus and "df" shows only 82/500MB used.
One detail that might be useful to mention: when I first ran into this issue with kernel 4.18, I was able to get the system to boot successfully every time using the "nolapic" kernel parameter. Having only one logical cpu core made for an unpleasant user experience so I reverted to 4.17.
