There is no kernel in the boot directory on my 5.2 RC2 system. There
is an boot sub-directory named kernel that contains 150 files, one
of them being kernel that's around the correct size to be the
GENERIC binary kernel.
Are you telling me that the kernel binary is moved from an easy
uncluttered location in 4.9 of / to a location 2 directory levels
deep and surrounded with a bunch of clutter?
What king of stupid system design decision is that?
Is it possible this is an mistake?
Should an problem report be make to point this error out the 5.2

Ooh, sorry. kernel & co. are in /boot/kernel. If you want to back
cd /boot ; cp -R kernel kernel.GENERIC
and issue 'boot kernel.GENERIC' from the boot prompt if you want to
