> So, while installing libeatmydata into chroot would be superior,

Here's a patch to do that.

I only wrote it half an hour ago, so not very tested, but it seems to
work for me, and be a fair bit faster than simply force-unsafe-io.

I know this won't work on Ubuntu (where eatmydata isn't in main, so
debootstrap can't install it), but I can improve it to handle that
better). It can be installed after enabling universe in the chroot, and
we can also not run it if it isn't installed in the chroot.

It would probably also make sense to Recommend eatmydata (for speeding
up debootstrap and tarball unpacking)
