So let's give some background. Whilst it would have bee good to
finally move linux/5.10.38-1 to testing because it contained many
needed bugfixes and in particular as well the CVE fixes for the bpf
issues, doing so would have introduced the worse bpf issue

Cf. https://www.openwall.com/lists/oss-security/2021/05/27/1

I uploaded now 5.10.40-1 which contains those fixes for CVE-2021-33200
in the upload, we should ensure those fixes go into bullseye.

Assuming we notice no issues with that upload, once Cyril is fine with
it as well from d-i perspective, please let it migrate to bullseye.
