You don't need an escape-code. kernel-version is \r
More of those can be found at your local getty manpage :)
The issue-file (/etc/issue or the file set with the -f
option) may contain certain escape codes to display the
system name, date and time etc. All escape codes consist
of a backslash (\) immediately followed by one of the let
ters explained below.
b Insert the baudrate of the current line.
d Insert the current date.
s Insert the system name, the name of the operating
l Insert the name of the current tty line.
m Insert the architecture identifier of the machine,
n Insert the nodename of the machine, also known as
o Insert the domainname of the machine.
r Insert the release number of the OS, eg. 1.1.9.
t Insert the current time.
u Insert the number of current users logged in.
U Insert the string "1 user" or "<n> users" where <n>
is the number of current users logged in.
v Insert the version of the OS, eg. the build-date
