Debian LTS work, December 2020

I was assigned 16 hours of work by Freexian's Debian LTS initiative and carried over 9 hours from earlier months. I worked 16.5 hours this month, so I will carry over 8.5 hours to January. (Updated: corrected number of hours worked.)

I updated linux-4.19 to include the changes in the Debian 10.7 point release, uploaded the package, and issued DLA-2483-1 for this.

I picked some regression fixes from the Linux 4.9 stable branch to the linux package, and uploaded the package. This unfortunately failed to build on arm64 due to some upstream changes uncovering an old bug, so I made a second upload fixing that. I issued DLA-2494-1 for this.

I updated the linux packaging branch for stretch to Linux 4.9.249, but haven't made another package upload yet.
