What are you talking about? I did a cvsup/make kernel process just
week ago on a 5.1 machine, and the 5.2 kernel refused to work with
network card. Lucky for me, kernel.old was in the boot directory,
I was able to move it back over kernel.
Yes, the process and everything is different, but the basic fallback device is still there.

Out of interest I just checked three 5.2.1 machines all of which were installed as 5.x and the most recent installed as 5.2.1 a week or so ago, then cvsup'd and buildworld/kernel'd just once.
All have kernel.old
