It always contains the kernel version that was in unstable during the
time when the debian-installer was built, in this case 4.19.16-1:

I see. I don't know, however, when 5.0 will be part of unstable. Mind that
we're going into freeze soonish and we are going to end up with whatever
is the next LTS kernel.

So, it might be possible to backport this fix and open a PR in Salsa.

Well, I can just continue building new images and put them into a separate
subfolder for testing. We don't need to block the other arches because
of this particular bug.
