Using @!LINUX_5_4 would break, once the next kernel after 5.4 comes
around (be it in semi-private testing or officially with the next LTS
kernel), while it's safe to assume that no older kernels will be merged
back into master. It's usually a better strategy to test for known old
kernels/ features, than to consider the new approach as an exception.
