kernel panic installing 5.4-release

Because it's an *old* server, and because 5.4-r should
be a mature enough distribution by now that any bugs
which were going to be fixed would already be fixed.

I could only find one reference to a problem like this
one, and in that case it was happening in 6.x, which
indicates that whatever the problem is, it hasn't been
fixed. Which implies that it's either considered to be
not a problem by way of an easy workaround, or that
it's not an important problem due to not happening
very often. Either way, an answer to the question at
hand would be much appreciated.
