The version is not 4 days in unstable, looks good to me to let it
migrate to testing (unless Cyril spotted issues in recent d-i tests).

The FragAttack CVE fixes were now queued upstream as well for the
stable series, so I expect I can followup soon with a follow up for
those as well "soonish". But we should first let 5.10.40-1 enter
bullseye in any case.

Thanks all for your work!
