No or wrong modules on netinst prevents install


I'm having trouble using a netboot of bullseye, because of wrong kernel
modules. This issue happens from time to time and happens from when a
new kernel hits testing until a new corresponding release of
netboot.tar.gz is published on ftp.debian.org 

I can see on tracker that there are new commits not released yet, that
i assume it is related, but not sure enough:

commit 13997c93e86d59b4c22cc0f254c9ca95b78f35a0

    Bump Linux kernel ABI to 5.10.0-8

Can we work on automating this a little bit further on a way that new kernels get released in sync with new builds of debian-installer?
Last kernel migrated to testing on July 23

We need either (or both) of:

* Keep old kernel modules on repositories until new debian-installer gets build and distributed, so we can keep installing using netinst.
* Get some automation that a new kernel triggers a build and distribution of newer netboot images, so the requirement for the former tends to zero.

Don't know if this issue needs to be resolved by this team or no

Please, keep in mind I'm not on this list, so please CC me

Thanks, a lot!
