Debian Cloud kernel images

Debian has a cloud kernel initiative where they now have linux images optimized for performance on hypervisors and also contain the bare minimum modules needed to boot on major hypervisor platforms which is good for security. Though with the upcoming lockdown feature the extra modules can still be made off limits for attackers if not used.

This kernel version is available in buster and stretch backports which means we probably can’t use it for our purposes but good to consider for later.
