Using multiply kernels with reserved GENERIC

I compile my own kernel:

# make buildkernel KERNCONF=MYKERN && make installkernel KERNCONF=MYKERN

After this, the new kernel is into /boot/kernel , and old one is into

After first kernel rebuilding, kernel.old is GENERIC. But after second one
it seems that I'm unable to boot GENERIC without compiling and installing it

Is it possible to have GENERIC for system crash restoring purposes somewhere
like /boot/kernel.generic ?
