Stability of kernel updates on Debian 10

Hi, this is the first time I'm trying Debian on ARM and got an issue
after installing updates.

I installed Debian 10 on RPi 4 (4GB), hoping updates would be stable
enough - https://raspi.debian.net/verified/20210210_raspi_4_buster.img.xz

Ran "apt-get update; apt-get dist-upgrade" and now the kernel hangs
half-way through booting. Is this a known issue and also, do updates
get tested at all for RPi before they are released?

The following packages got updated:

root@rpi4-20210210:/etc/apt# apt-get dist-upgrade
