We do this for backports kernel in package_config. The line
will tell install_packages to give this to apt-get/apt which will then
install the kernel package from buster-backports. This is normal apt syntax.
This should also work with /testing.
Currently we do not support a syntax in package_config for adding the
option "-t testing" to an apt-get/apt call. But I've already thought
about adding this.
