That Ironlake is Intel 5th Gen GMA (Clarkdale). FWIW, the 4.19 kernel can work with the "same"
kernel, server & OpenGL/Mesa, on Intel 4th Gen GMA Eaglelake with KDE/Plasma on EXT4:

That's all from an openSUSE Tumbleweed box that has Stretch and Buster but not Sid. Same box
also has Fedora 29/Plasma5 running as with TW, except it has Mesa 18.2.4.
