You're misinterpreting the X log. The lines in question actually say:
[ 65.388] Build Operating System: Linux 3.16.0-4-amd64 x86_64 Debian
[ 65.388] Current Operating System: Linux laptopanil 4.9.0-2-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 4.9.18-1 (2017-03-30) x86_64
[ 65.388] Kernel command line: BOOT_IMAGE=/boot/vmlinuz-4.9.0-2-amd64 root=UUID=47d1db29-628c-4a50-9ab1-808217075da8 ro quiet
Which is to say, this system is running kernel package 4.9.0-2-amd64,
but the X server was *built* by the Debian maintainers under kernel
package 3.16.0-4-amd64. Which is not relevant to the current problem
as far as I'm aware.
