Debian LTS work, October 2021

In October I was assigned 1.25 hours of work by Freexian's Debian LTS initiative and carried over 28.75 hours from earlier months. I worked 14.75 hours and will carry over the remainder.

I updated the linux-4.19 package to merge in the changes in buster release 10.11, uploaded that and issued DLA-2785-1.

I continued work on an update to the linux (4.9) package, but did not make an upload this month.
