When used in virtual machine environments, Linux on amd64 is able to report
"steal time" to the guest.  This functionality has been supported by Linux
on amd64 for years, but was only added to arm64 with Linux 5.5.

As Debian and arm64 are increasingly used in virtual environments, including
cloud environments, the ability to report steal time is increasingly
important for system monitoring and performance analysis.  Thus, I'd like to
request that CPU steal time accounting support for arm64 be backported to
buster, if possible.
