Way too much work and downtime.  Seriously, just debootstrap sid into
a chroot.  Build there, then copy the kernel image .deb file out to the
"real" system, and install it.

Or wait for an official backports kernel image that satisfies you.

Or do nothing.

(And how did you get from buster back to stretch, suddenly?)
