[Prime] XOrg freezes after gnome login (no screen with usable configuration)

Hello,

I am on Debian 5.4 with a GeForce GTX 1050 Ti Mobile with Nvidia drivers 440.64 configured with Prime to use a second monitor. More precisely, I followed a while ago the simple instructions of this post https://devtalk.nvidia.com/default/topic/1022670/linux/official-driver-384-59-with-geforce-1050m-doesn-t-work-on-opensuse-tumbleweed-kde/post/5203910/#5203910 and everything has been working fine for a time.

However after a recent reboot Gnome freezes after login (black screen, cannot do anything), and logs show that X11 complains that “Screen(s) found, but none have a usable configuration.”, although I did not change anything about my configuration. Here is my xorg.conf:

Section "ServerLayout"
    Identifier "layout"
    Screen 0 "nvidia"
    Inactive "intel"
EndSection

Section "Device"
    Identifier "nvidia"
    Driver "nvidia"
    BusID "PCI:01:00:0"
    Option "AllowEmptyInitialConfiguration"
EndSection

Section "Screen"
    Identifier "nvidia"
    Device "nvidia"
    # Uncomment this line if your computer has no display devices connected to
    # the NVIDIA GPU.  Leave it commented if you have display devices
    # connected to the NVIDIA GPU that you would like to use.
    #Option "UseDisplayDevice" "none"
EndSection

Section "Device"
    Identifier "intel"
    Driver "modesetting"
EndSection

Section "Screen"
    Identifier "intel"
    Device "intel"
EndSection

And the X11 logs:
