It should be available as a pkg.tar.xz, too, in case you'd rather download and install instead of building it. There's also a linux-pine64-420 if you don't want mainline.

The pine64-4.20 kernel is actually the one I was already running, but I got the 5.3 kernel built and installed, and everything appears to be working fine. I severely underestimated how long it would take to build locally though (~10 hours), so if anybody else reading this is considering upgrading I'd highly recommend just downloading the pkg.tar.xz from the Manjaro-ARM repositories.

*Seems I spoke too soon. No 8723 wireless module after upgrading.
*Looks like the 8723 dkms module needs to be updated to the 2019.07.31 from 2018.11.07 to work with the 5.x kernel - you can download the dkms-rtl8723cs-2019.07.31-1-any.pkg.tar.xz package from any of the Manjaro-ARM repositories and manually install it to get wireless up and running
