bootloader menu to pick a kernel - what is the current situation in in early 2022?
#3
Another option: clone your system to a fast SD card.  Boot from it and make sure it works properly.  When the SD boot works well,  move the custom kernel into place on the SD card and boot from it to test your kernel. 

Advantage
1.  leaves your EMMC boot untouched!   
2. Backout is remove the SD card and reboot: dead simple.
3. Retry is fix your custom kernel, copy into place on the SD card, and try again.

Way less stress, dead simple, portable, and repeatable.
