Quite likely that's bug #914495[1].  #914980 and #915178 appear to be

Probably you should stick to that kernel for the time being.  There is
4.19.5 in experimental which would likely fix your problem, but several

I guess that's the reason why the Debian kernel team does not upload
4.19 to unstable.
