That is great and it is very welcome.

As we already concluded on the other thread this is a kernel issue and
needs to be dealt by the kernel team.

It is not required and you already provided that information on the bug
report you did at #519815. This is right place to provide more
information.

Sorry but you're wrong about kernel being 486 based be a mistake. This
allow Debian to be installer in more machines and this is exactly what
we intend.

Yes, we have a bug on 486 flavor and this needs to be solved but making
Debian non-installable in older machines is not the way to do that.

I've added kernel team mailing list and I hope they can take a look
and provide more information on the bug.

Kernel team, please, take a look at #519815. This is a serious bug
and would be nice to have it fixed for 5.0.1 if possible.

Kind regards,
