Package: systemd
Version: 241-7~deb10u4
Severity: important
Tags: upstream

Dear Maintainer,

This is about
which is triggered on stable if one is using a newer kernel (e.g. from 
backports, partial upgrades, self-compiled, etc.).

Admittedly one option would be to upgrade to systemd from backports 
(once a version with the patch is available) though I'm hoping this 
qualifies for a stable update :)

Kind regards,
