No, I wish fastboot flash kernel Image.gz-dtb was a thing on the Pixel 2
XL but Google omitted it unfortunately (they didn't on the Pixel 2
apparently which I find odd but whatever).

All of my tools are publicly available, I'll link them below.

The build script handles compiling the kernel and boot image, the
manifest is to sync the bare essentials down so you don't have to pull
down a full AOSP tree, and the flashing function pulls the boot image
down off my server and flashes it to the device without manually doing
commands. I've also linked the kernel tree if you care to look through
